📦 GOING FOR PAPER INSTEAD OF PLASTIC 📦
Creamchup's packaging will use paper instead of plastic. Why? "Using brown paper bags over the plastic. Brown Paper Bags carry the ability to be recycled and hence it is considered to be a readily available option undoubtedly. While talking about plastic bags, it is highly costly to recycle them; hence they are simply the eon to the surface of the earth, making things all the more worst."
Indeed plastic bag is eco friendly. By doing campaign like this, we could save millions of life on earth. And even we are saving earth too. Taking this seriously will make people realised how important it is.

BYO bottle and refill #saynotoplastic
Did you know that half the plastic ever made was produced in the last 15 years? That a trillion plastic bags are used worldwide each year with an average ‘working life’ of just 15 minutes? Plastic lives on for between 450 years and forever!

Say no to plastic before the oceans turn irretrievably into a thin soup of plastic ♻️

After talking about seasonal fresh food the other day, I also wanted to touch upon dried food and the difficulty that we as consumers face in choosing low impact options when it comes to our fundamental needs. It’s frustrating to repeatedly see all of our staple dried foods such as pasta, oats and rice wrapped in plastic. That being said, Aldi do stock porridge oats in a paper bag 👏🏻
Plastic free bulk buying is becoming much more widely accessible now in the UK, particularly for those based in London. Up the M6 to Manchester, however, it’s still a bit of a rarity so it was such a delight to discover that @villagegreens in Prestwich have a lovely little mini bulk section and also offer organic cotton produce bags like this one, to reuse again and again.
For some, where bulk buying is not logistically possible @zerowasteclub recognise the wider consumer need and deliver plastic free organic food on a weekly basis. They have a decent selection of items and package everything in recycled paper 🙌🏻
Both of these organisations welcome suggestions for new items and are keen to listen and respond to their customers which is ace.
If supermarkets are your only option there are still steps you can take to minimise packaging such as choosing the largest option available and avoid portioned packaging where possible.
I honestly reckon this is one of the hardest things to tackle so I think it’s important to focus on small victories and to accept that there may well be a limitation to what is within our means. We’re definitely seeing a shift towards more demand for plastic free options so fingers crossed there’ll be more of a wave across the country.
How do you get on with dried food? Are you lucky to have plastic free options near by or have you had a dabble with bulk buying?
