Hi everyone! I hope your having a wonderful day 🌞
I am working on making simple and eco-friendly changes at the grocery store. I went today and really paid attention to what I bought and what it was packaged in. Produce and meat are the worst for me. I am getting some cloth bags for my produce. I looked for individual, not in plastic wrap fruits and vegetables today. I typically buy apples in a plastic bag. They get wasted because I never know when my daughter will eat them. One week she eats tons and the next week none. Now I buy individual apples and only buy a few. They taste so much fresher to me🍎.
The meat department is an area I just deal with the plastic. We don’t eat tons of meat, so it’s minimal. I stopped buying lunch meat and mostly buy chicken, fish and smoked turkey sausage. If anything comes in a plastic container, I reuse it.
I recycle cans, cardboard packages and any other recyclable packaging. I always check to see if it’s recyclable. I have reduced my trash so much already😊
I am doing away with Ziploc bags. I am using my glass jars and other storage containers for food storage. I am making some cloth bowl covers and a cloth bread keeper. I am excited to do away with as much as I can.
Another way I’m reducing packaging is by making as much homemade as I can. Biscuits, bread, muffins, etc…
I am continuing to research the grocery store and figure out how I can buy less packaging. It’s actually fun 😁
Baby steps will all come together to make our home more simple and eco-friendly 🙂
