There's a lot of things we do today that produce unneccesary waste. Simply buying something with too much packaging materials can take a toll on the environment; and all because we care about how it looks on the outside.
Popcorn is quite the culprit when it comes to waste. Since most people opt out of cooking their popcorn on the stovetop in favor of microwavable convenience, the trash man is left with a popcorn bag, plastic wrap that goes around the popcorn bag, unused oil and grease, and a box that holds it all! Not to mention that there are many bags in each box, so multiply that waste by five or ten!
One way to keep the quick convenience of microwavable popcorn while cutting out the non-biodegradable byproducts is to follow this simple step by step that teaches you to cook your popcorn in a simple brown paper bag. You can use the bag several times before you have to replace it, and then it can go in your compost pile!
