ARE YOU READY TO GO SHOPPING?
Every change matters. Here we have a simple (but great!) idea to avoid the usage of single-use plastic when you do the shopping...
Next time you go to the supermarket ask yourself a question: are you going to buy meat?
If the answer is yes, pack some containers with you along with your reusable bag 😊.
The service at the counter of all the supermarkets I have been (New World and Pak and Save) already know how to measure the container and you just paid for the weight of the meat you are buying.
This way we eco-conscious collaborate not generating more waste.
It is not a secret that recycling globally is a disaster. Uk, USA, China, are all trying to tackle the plastic problem with no solution yet.
In the mid-time, plastic ends up on landfills or in the sea.
Today, 2019, only 9% of the plastic produced is recycled. It is an alarming number.
We as consumers can make a difference if we change our behavior at the time to buy.
I’m not going to force you to go to the organic store with your container as I do feel that the meet in supermarket in NZ is very good. But this simple change can collaborate a lot.
Next time you go to the supermarket do not forget your container 💪🏻 Have you done it yet?! How do you feel about it?
