With just a few changes in our grocery shopping habits, we can greatly reduce our amount of waste.
Grocery stores are filled with single use plastics. Over 50% of all plastic made is only used once.
At it’s best, it sits in a landfill forever. At it’s worst, it breaks down into microscopic pieces in the ocean where fish mistake it for food, ultimately killing them.
I have several very lengthy and detailed posts about how you can cut down your trash at the grocery store!
Check out the posts below. If you already know where your local bulk store is, head one over and stock up on some weekly staples like oatmeal, rice, lentils and dry beans.
If you don’t know where your local bulk store is, get out there and do some digging! Yelp is a great place to search for bulk bins.
Type bulk bins into the search bar, and you could be surprised with what you find! Also, keep your eyes peeled around town.
If you don’t have any bulk, (and make sure you really check!) then check out my “How to Buy Without Bulk Post.” The link is below, and try to avoid plastic. Opt for paper, glass, and cardboard instead.
No bulk option in France! The best we can do is recycle a maximum of things but there are always plastic lids here and there, it is so annoying…
There are a lot of bulk options in France! I don’t know about your town though. Which town do you live in?
I started skipthebag.blogspot.com because I was shocked how many plastic bags were being used. I moved from a state that had banned them to a state where such bans are illegal. Although anyone can #skipthebag and refuse plastic bags-we don’t need bans for that! Thanks for encouraging others to do that!
Online grocery shopping is really good.I always shop grocery online because it save my time and money.I always shop from eZeelo.com and it is good.
