#86 - Buying the non-plastic version of the same product

Image
When I am in a supermarket and have a choice to buy a product with plastic wrapping or without, I buy the non-plastic version. To carry the grapes in this case, I use a net (#39) or nothing at all. Saves me again a lot of plastic waste.

#85 - Buying right amount of cheese to reduce food waste

During shopping for the week, I decided to go the counter to get the exact amount of cheese. If I had chosen prepacked cheese, I would have had to buy two, meaning more plastic, more waste and probably food leftovers.

When I am in a supermarket or at home and need something from the fridge, I make sure to close the door as soon as possible. This keeps the cold in and therefore save energy.


#83 - Cleaning area that obviously needs cleaning

I found a place with quite some buried waste. I decided to dig it out to be able to throw it away. It turned to be an awful lot! Afterwards, I felt really pleased having done this; I also felt sad that there are probably many more places like this where waste is still buried.
