PLASTIC- FREE JULY: DAY 9

𝐃𝐑𝐘 𝐅𝐎𝐎𝐃𝐒⁣

Try to find a brand that uses boxes instead of plastic bags.⁣

Even though this pasta box still has some plastic ( why do we need a window if there are pictures?!) , it’s way less than you get if you buy a bag of pasta.⁣

PLUS, this cardboard can be recycled (I always remove the plastic window).⁣

This swap can be done with many foods: couscous, dry lentils, dry beans, dry chickpeas… you get the idea.⁣

These dry foods are also the most likely to be stocked at your bulk buy shop, where you can take your own container, fill up, weigh and buy.⁣

Bulk buy options are being g rolled out in many supermarkets,and the price will go down as the demand increases. ⁣

Please support these low and zero-waste initiatives if and when you can.⁣
