Quick trip to Roebridge Natural Food Market in Ringwood, Hampshire, for fruit and veg, in amongst the chaos of litter pick day yesterday!
Not quite plastic free-celery and strawberries let me down 😬 but all the rest is 🙌🏻 not to mention delicious!
Used the bring your own container section too to top up my seeds. .
Slowly getting there with swapping out the plastic and it gets easier and easier.
BUT organisation is key! And if you know me, you know I’m a bit of a whirlwind of children and chaos most of the time. So making sure I have bags, containers, water bottles, coffee cups (and I’ve just added a couple of metal straws and a couple of forks to my collection) has been a steep learning curve! .
My suggestion to all is:
. ✅Have the basics in your bag- a couple of folded up fabric bags, a coffee cup and a straw if you’ve got kids that love green smoothies! (Or is that just my funny kids)
. ✅Have 2 or 3 stacked spare coffee cups in your glove compartment of your car-particularly satisfying if you have a friend with you without their own reusable mug! . ✅Then have a big bag in the boot (or footwell of the child with the shortest legs 🙈) with all the other shopping bags, spare straws/cutlery, a couple of water bottles and some containers for shops that let you use your own! .
I know, it sounds a lot, but I started off just trying to bring out the minimum each time I thought I would need it and I kept getting caught short! So now I have a stash. When we don’t have an enormous buggy in the boot I’m going to treat myself to some kind of clever sectioned organised boot space system, we will never be caught short again 🤣🤣🤣 #reusablestraw #reusablebags #reusablecoffeecup #reusablewaterbottle #zerowaste #plasticfree #lowpact #changeyourhabits #lesslitter #ecobrickwhatsleft #ecobrick #reducereuserecycle #fruitandveg #ringwood #ringwoodindependents #roebridgenaturalfoodmarket #bringyourowncontainer #plasticfreefamily
