The past 4 weeks have been very pleasing to me! I have found ways to avoid plastic packaging and stick to no bags, recyclable, box board or my own recyclable/cloth bags. I shop at my local Bulk Barn and Grocery store, Sobey’s. Occasionally Wal-Mart and Summerside Butcher Shop. I would like to expand to our local Farmers Market!
Here is how I am doing now.
Produce with no plastic ✔
Berries. The kids and I love berries! plastic containers, but at least they are recyclable! We do have a blueberry bush and a Mulberry tree. Someday I want a big patch of berries, different varieties. Maybe an apple orchard too! Depending on what everybody eats. There are 7 of us! ☺
Bulk Barn take in. ☺
Some items need improvement, sometimes we are just stuck with plastic.
All I did to start, was to choose a recyclable container/box board over waste plastic. Next was to purchase them without bags. Reuse containers and mason jars!
