What do you do about your trash?
If there isn't a good recycle program through your garbage company some local natural food stores might take some items. In our town the recycling program is awsome. But the local Co-op takes frozen food boxes, aseptic containers-like soy milk comes in, and styrafoam. So we take all that sort of thing over there since it can't be taken at cub side. Mailing companies often will take and reuse styrafoam packaging "peanuts" too. There are also new peanuts out there made of cellulose that break down in water.
The other idea- though it takes some planning is don't buy items with excessive packaging in the first place. We never buy things like Lunchables and try to avoid other products that have 3 layers of packaging before you get to the item.
