Finally i got around to buying something which i think is incredibly important and that is reusable bags for fruit and vegetables. I saw these bags before i travelled home for Christmas and planned to buy them once i got home to my own apartment, but have forgotten each time i have gone shopping – but today i finally remembered!
It is such a simple thing to do and only kost 60kr/€6 which really isn’t so much if you consider that it will save you thousands of plastic bags!
So a tips if you want to minimize plastic is to either use reusable bags or even paper bags (however that still leads to waste!). Also in the future i hope that there will be alot more loose fruits, veggies, nuts, muesli etc so that there isn’t so much prepackaged stuff as that is just unnecessary plastic and packaging. But for now, small things like this can still make a difference… now let’s just hope i remember them each time i go shopping 🙂
Do you have any other tips on how to minimize plastic use, or any other smart shopping tips to minimize waste or plastic? 🙂
