Earth Day Reminds us to Reduce Our Plastic Waste



Another spring has sprung and things are getting greener outside our windows. Earth Day reminds us it's important for us and our brand to be eco-friendly every day. After all, there is no planet B.

Human behavior has a direct and dramatic impact on the environment. With the COVID-19 crisis causing more people to stay home, pollution has been on the temporary decline. One recent example is in India, where for the first time in decades, residents have been able to see the Himalayas due to the reduction in air pollution (according to this CNN article). And while the pandemic has negatively affected so many of us, it has shown the impact that our population can make on our climate.

It all starts with small steps: recycling your cans and paper, opting for a reusable grocery bag, or buying clothes made from sustainable fabrics. The good news is, most of this can be achieved with a few simple product swaps, and our EcoSmart® collection has everything you'll need.

With dozens of products made from recycled materials and eco-friendly substitutes for single-use plastics, QRG makes it easy to find sustainable alternatives.

Vert 13oz. Wheat Straw Mug

Wheat straw is the rigid, durable stock left over after wheat grains are harvested, and it makes a solid substitute for plastic. This wheat straw mug is made with half as much plastic, not to mention all the disposable cups it saves.

Split Recycled 5oz. Cotton Twill Convention Tote

Reusable totes are a great substitute for the traditional plastic grocery bag, but that's far from their only use. This tote is made from 70-80% recycled cotton. Take it to the store, the park or the library, and keep those plastic bags out of a landfill.
