I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet. I got home from Helsinki today to find that one of our tubes of cream had been cut down to size. Although this concept was not in the least new to me (I think it's a pretty standard tactic) I had never thought to do it myself. So a big thank you goes out to Juha (who has been reading No Impact Man) for giving me this idea!
So today I say: Before throwing out your empties, make sure they're actually empty.
It might seem like a small difference, but every little bit helps. So if cutting open the tube gets you an extra 2 uses, and you have ie. 50 uses in total, then for every 25 tubes, you'll save one tube. Ideally, it'd be great to eliminate tubes, but if you're not there yet (and you're not alone) then might as well make the best of what you have!
