Minimal Waste Shopping

Food packaging makes up a large portion of your weekly waste.  Its extremely difficult to find products in the grocery store that do not have multiple types of non biodegradable packaging.  Finding alternatives for many of the products we are used to purchasing is not necessarily straight forward, it often requires hunting the store or changing your recipes of grocery list.

Sometimes it takes as little as remembering to bring your grocery bags into the store or your coffee cup in the car.  Save waste by thinking ahead.

I also like to take empty containers with me for filling where I can buy in bulk.  Also when I go for lunch I like to bring a container for leftovers.
