Hey Everyone, I hope your day has been well.
So I recently ordered food from a zero waste supermarket where everything is ordered in bulk and when you make a purchase it is distributed into paper bags (depending on the item) and brought to you in a cardboard box, similar to what you get in supermarkets. It’s a fairly new concept as there aren’t many stores like this but I think it’s a very good idea at reducing plastic use and waste. I wasn’t able to do a full shop and purchase a variety of things but I was able to get a good selection.
I think my favourite things so far were the mango strips which I absolutely love, you must try them if you haven’t already. It is definitely something to fill a sugar craving however, because they are sweet be mindful of your teeth. I also really liked the desiccated coconut which I ended up sprinkling on just about everything I ate such as a couscous salad, scones topped with jam, mixing into a chicken curry and baking. So far, none on the paper bags have ripped which was good however you can really notice how much oil is in the desiccated coconut as the bag did become quite dark after it arrived so I put it into a used pasta jar.
Actually as you can see below, I’ve been keeping a few used glass jars so that I can use them as food storage later on. I’m trying to do my bit for the environment and reduce my waste where possible, it’s not anything major but I do believe that we all have our part to play.
Here is my shopping list:
- desiccated coconut
- brown rice
- nutritional yeast
- toilet paper
- duck eggs
- mango strips
