Farberware Eco Friendly Plastic Containers
Found these at Duane Reade. Apparently they are biodegradable plastic and/or fully recyclable. Another bonus was that they were on sale for $2.50 a piece! That is the same, if not cheaper than conventional plastic containers.
Once again I am proud of Duane Reade for being so proactive in the green product market. Their own brands (ie: Apt 5 and Delish) are their personal effort to offer sustainable and eco-friendly products, while promoting other brands (Farberware, for example) eco-friendly products are great steps towards putting these issues right in the consumer’s face (where they belong).
Check out this interesting tidbit about Duane Reade’s private labeling strategy and their efforts to ride the “green product” wave.
