If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that we love our cereal. With 3 kids, it makes a convenient, quick breakfast or snack. I have to admit that I eat cereal A LOT as well. So with all this cereal eating going on, it makes sense to buy it in bulk. I often shop at Sam’s Club, where you can buy everything supersized! The disadvantage to buying in bulk however, is the packaging. Sometimes, the boxes are large and cumbersome, and hard to find a place to store such large items.
The smart folks at Cheerios have taken this into consideration! They have managed to not only reduce package size, making it easier to use, more convenient to store, but also managed to INCREASE the amount of cereal you get at the same time! Winning 🙂
But don’t take my word for it, check out this video….
Pretty cool huh?
I can’t say I am super “green”, but I am trying to reduce our waste, increase the amounts we recycle, and use more environmentally friendly cleaning methods. So it is really nice to know that while I am buying a product that my family loves, and each box we purchase contains more cereal (making it more friendly on the pocketbook), Cheerios has done their part by reducing packaging material by over 200,000 lbs- saving 1,000 trees and taking 130 Cheerios trucks of the road, decreasing CO2 emissions. Awesome.
