We were pretty happy to find loose frozen fruit at Booths. Now we don't need to buy frozen fruit in the un-recyclable plastic trays/not buy frozen fruit at all for breakfasts. There is a whole kilo of frozen raspberries in that jar and it came to £7 - not too bad! This will last us roughly 2-3 weeks for breakfast 5 days a week.
No I didn't draw it (I wish!). My nephew did when he was 7. So....Because I've been trying to reduce waste I produce (especially single-use stuff), I've just decided not to buy peanut butter in plastic jars or any jars. Maybe i should make homemade peanut butter myself.... haha. Ehh~ who am I kidding?😂 Bye bye Peanut Butter. (I love you, it's just I don't like cooking or anything similar to it!!) 일회용품사용 줄이기 운동에 적극 참여하고 있다고 생각했는데. 플라스틱에 든 피넛버터를 밥먹듯이 먹고 있었네.. 😥 안녕 피넛버터. 그동안 즐거웠엉👋 너를 직접 내가 만들정도로 널 사랑하지는 않아. 난 요리를 끔찍히 싫어하거든. 미안해. 안녕. 근데 나 왜 점점 안먹는게 많아지는거? 비건에 노 팜유에 노 피넛버터.. 😨 근데 진짜 친구들이 궁금해하는 것처럼 살은 왜 안빠지는걸까.. #waterbottle#plasticfree#nosingleuseplastic#savebadasavetheworld#swellbottle#환경보호
New achievement unlocked: glass jar for loose (bulk) pop corn from the bulk bins at the local supermarket.
Because meat in plastic container is old news, time to bring on the glass😁😂. Hahah... Not really. I don't have that many glass container and first priority for them is for the cooked food. The jar feels just nice for the small amount of pop corn I needed for class. . . .
Bonus achievement: shared the pic not only here, but also at the local neighbourhood FB group. First step at.. Advocacy? I mean it's nice to be in the ZW community and all, but we are also part of our own local communities, and the benefits from local action will benefit you better. No? Here's to more advocacy move in the future. . . .
Wohooo...today's staff at the supermarket allowed me to use my own bag for buying loose onion. No plastic bag/net required, just weight sticker on the bag itself👍👍💪. Maybe she thought the bag is cute. Wonder where I got it from... 🤔😉😉
. . .
Heheiiii... Hari ini staf supermarket baik sekali, aku boleh pake tasku sendiri buat beli bawang. Gak perlu tas/jaring plastik, cuma sticker buat berat dan harga saja ditempel langsung di tasnya dong. Lagi tasnya lucu banget sih. Dapet darimana ya? 😁😉😉. . .
Went on my first official #zerowaste grocery trip! I got a few things in glass jars because I needed to stock up on things before going back to school where my grocery store is much smaller and less #zerowastegroceryshopping friendly.
In bulk I got almonds, walnuts, pecans, quinoa, chickpeas, pinto beans, dried blueberries, ginger chunks, and unsweetened chocolate. For produce I got spinach, green onions, bananas, an ambrosia apple, a blood orange, a tangelo, avocados, kiwi, and a cucumber. In glass I got some kombucha (to try because I’ve never had it before), tahini, lemon poppyseed dressing, seasoned vegetable paste, and lemon dill aioli. I got sesame oil in a metal can.
It’s not perfect but it’s a good start on my #zerowastejourney ! Plus everything is in #secondhand jars from Goodwill!
Thank you @evening.standard for running “The Last Straw” campaign. Did you know that 90% of marine life have straws and other plastics in their bodies? It’s about time we stopped using plastic straws. Talk to your kids about it. If you need help, watch a you tube video of a straw being pulled out of a turtle’s 🐢 🐢 nose! Don’t worry, the turtle lives and it’s not too traumatic (but watch it first and make a judgement based on your kids’ sensitivity threshold) or watch @blue.planet.2 with them on BBC iplayer and say no to plastic straws! I know it’s tricky because all kids’ drinks come with straws but try and you’ll soon get used to ordering your drinks without straws! 🥤 🥤 .
I have been on a natural/zero waste deodorant journey for over a year now. I finally found one that worked and smelt great, three months in I had a massive allergic reaction and had to stop using it....... anyway after giving my armpits a rest I am back using this crystal now, and it seams to be working this time round 👏🏽 wish me and my armpits luck!
