Buying veggies and fruits in bulk or package free saves not only our planet from unnecessary and toxic plastic waste which adds to the global warming, poisoning our land, rivers and oceans, destroying marine life and sea based habitat, polluting forests and comes back to our plate with new "organic" fruits and veggies raised on the land packed with toxins we threw in it... It also builds beautiful routine. I like to go to the grocery shop early morning just after it's opened. It's peaceful time and i can enjoy fresh stuff. It's also nice opportunity to interact with sales and cashiers, chance to inspire them or give some information about plastic. And even it seems in vain and people don't care, they will remember. And maybe think. This is vital on the way of sustainability, to start thinking.
Today i tried to avoid plastic packed stuff, with fruits and veggies i am reusing my old plastic bags (until i get my curtain cut 😂😂) All supermarkets in Russia are bulk type for fruits, veggies and some are selling legumes, nuts, tea, coffee etc. It always was and it's a good thing, we can buy as much as we need, avoid food waste, choose what we like and pay less.
I was very happy to find buckwheat in cartboard! It is really a miracle, for loose stuff like grains are almost always packed in plastic here except only big supermarkets like Auchan.
Unfortunately i couldn't buy pasta in this shop without plastic "window" 😂 though i could buy in bulk yesterday if i wouldn't forget 😐 This is why better planning is important.
Other things are: non refined Sunflower oil, black grapes, apricots and veggies - everything package free.
Do you also enjoy morning Saturday shopping?
