In recent years, we’ve all become familiar with terms like “going green” and “eco-friendly”. In fact, these buzz words are used so often in media and product packaging that their meaning can sometimes get lost or forgotten. Eco-friendly literally means earth-friendly or not harmful to the environment. This term most commonly refers to products that contribute to green living or practices that help conserve resources like water and energy. Eco-friendly products also prevent contributions to air, water and land pollution.
Developing eco-friendly habits doesn’t have to be an all or nothing venture. You can engage in eco-friendly habits or practices by being more conscious of how you use resources. Taking small continuing steps towards a common goal can have more of an effect than you know. Turning off lights in empty rooms or using a programmable thermostat- so you’re only heating or cooling your home when it’s occupied- is a good place to start.
At Woodstock and Village Apothecary, we are always looking for ways to help contribute to green living. In addition to our daily recycling efforts, our recent switch to using thermal labels is one more small way to lessen waste and help promote healthier living for the planet and its inhabitants.
Thermal labels are significantly smaller and therefore result in approximately a 300% reduction in paper. No ink is needed and the hardware is smaller and lasts longer than traditional printers resulting in less waste.
Working together, we can maintain a healthier planet as well as a better quality of life for ourselves and our future generations.
