Reasons I’m not #zerowaste
Check out all the plastic in my freezer! I buy bread, frozen fruits, frozen veggies, vegan meat substitutes. Finding certain items without plastic can be difficult or super expensive. Gluten free items for @darenjohannesen always come in packaging. Vegan meat substitutes are hard to find plastic free but choosing them over meat is wayyy better for the planet 🌎💕 You always have to weigh your choices and find what works for you.
One more thing...
I reuse all these bags. So if it says strawberries it might be chopped cauliflower, or frozen pucks of soup I made. It’s always an adventure 😂
Plus I do buy things like fresh local blueberries in huge boxes and freeze them. They may be frozen in plastic but I didn’t always buy them in plastic. I also have frozen pesto, frozen tomato sauce, and herbs.
It’s okay to buy these things and it’s okay to not be perfectly zero waste. Maybe think about other things you can do to help the environment (Drive less, eat less animal products, shorter showers, fly less, VOTE.... and so many more).
