Freeing myself of single-use plastics is going to be a completely new challenge for me. While I typically forego the plastic bag if I’m buying a head of lettuce or a bunch of kale at the store, basically everything else I buy comes in a plastic bag.
Here are some possible solutions I’ll be trying out during the cleanse to mitigate:
- This website can help locate good bulk sections and bulk stores across the US: https://www.litterless.com/wheretoshop
- Always keep a jar or other vessel in my purse in case of leftover food emergency
- Keep mesh bags or old plastic bags from home in the car to use at the bulk bins, also tie them in a knot rather than using a new twisty tie
- Use beeswax cloths to cover and store leftovers in the fridge
