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.
