Today I've refilled all my Glass Jars and decided I will never buy ingredients in PLASTIC again! If I need an ingredient I'll take my jar and go to a bulk store, or go to a farmers market to buy my food, seems so easy no? I know it's expensive, but would you rather pay a bit more or would you want to swim in plastic on your vacation? This happened to me in Greece, on the Hydra Island, it was so mind awakening to see this problem in reality and not just through a screen!
When I walked by the Migros (grocery store) in the Zurich Train station the other day, I was shocked of how EVERY Fruit and Vegetable was inclosed in one, two or sometimes three layers of plastic--just shocking!
Who wants to try to live a PLASTIC FREE life with me? I know it's hard however, small changes make a big
Also reducing your meat consumption to once a week (aka flexitarian) makes a HUGE difference!!
Remember we all live on this planet earth, we want to keep the birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and insects which were here first; alive & not extinct, and have a healthy and living planet for our future citizens of the world--> our children and grandchildren
1) STAY AWAY FROM TO GO CUPS, PLASTIC BAGS & STRAWS
Instead buy a keep cup, a metal straw and Bee's Wax wrap
The picture on your left is a glass straw in which I enjoyed my Thyme fresh ginger Limonade at Bros, Beans & Beets café and bar in Zurich. So cool to FINALLY see some restaurants that are aware and trying to make a difference :)
2) Buy in BULK- Buy products that are in season & locally grown
3) Reduce your consumption of meat to reduce your carbon footprint, improve your health and for animal welfare
