I went to the supermarket today and focused on not buying plastic items. As you can see, however, I still bought some plastic home, though at least it is all recyclable. I bought recycled toilet paper that has a green rating from WWF but is still wrapped in plastic. Also the basil plant is wrapped in plastic as well, I really hate the dried variety and the ones I had in the house have all died so I bought this home too. So how can I get rid of these plastics too?
I did avoid some other plastic though as I didn’t buy any bread as I can make my own. I also picked my own mandarins and put them in my Rethink produce bag rather than just picking up the pre-filled plastic bag; this only required a tiny bit more time to chose my own. I also put in some yummy garlic and cheese bread in one of my produce bags saving another plastic bag. Of course I used my wonderful star and string rethink bags to take all my shopping home in. So I bought home 3 plastic items and kept 5 out of my house. Not too bad.
