It's all in the Packaging

Eating Green is not only about eating organic and local foods.  It also has to do with what your food is packaged in.  Instead of buying foods that come wrapped in a lot of packaging, most of which is not eco-friendly, try buying minimally packaged or non-packaged foods. Better yet, buy food that has packaging that you can reuse or bring your own containers and buy in bulk. If you cannot get around the packaging, try buying foods packaged in biodegradable and recyclable materials.  These eco-friendly materials do not contain harmful chemicals or plastic coatings, and they do not require a lot of energy to produce.
