If you do this action, you could earn another 2 points [add to points]

When you go out for ice cream, reduce your waste by ordering your ice cream with a cone you can eat, so there is only the paper wrapping around the cone as a waste product. That paper can be recycled, so you don't add to the landfill. Many people buy ice cream in a paper cup, which also comes with a plastic spoon, and both usually get thrown away.

Some ice cream shops have started to switch to reusable testing spoons (silverware) instead of disposable spoons (wood or plastic) in order to reduce landfill waste.
