There are many small changes we can all make to reduce our environmental impact, like swapping out regular lightbulbs for energy-saving LED alternatives and using a reusable water bottle instead of constantly buying plastic ones. While reducing your own environmental impact won't change everything, it's an important baby step toward a greater goal.An easy place to start considering your environmental impact is with consumer packaged goods.
