Reduce Your Waste
The UK alone produces more than 170 tonnes of waste every year, and can you guess what a lot of that is made up of?
Most of the food you find in the supermarkets these days are wrapped in plastic. I've even seen single pieces of fruit or vegetables packaged in plastic. When in reality, it doesn't need to be.
So one easy way to reduce your waste is to buy food that isn't wrapped in plastic packaging. It isn't always completely avoidable, but there are times when it is.
If you really wanted to make sure you never purchased food in plastic packaging then head over to your local market, the fruit and vegetables are fresh and it's rare to see any plastic in sight.
