Elise with some tips on reducing kitchen waste as part of her Plastic Free July journey.
Like so many around Australia, we have made a commitment to reduce our use of plastic and reduce waste as part of Plastic Free July. These are some of the main changes we have made that will not only help us be plastic free this July, but far beyond. This list has a food/kitchen theme, but that is where the majority of our waste came from and where we had the biggest changes to make.
None of these changes have been particularly difficult – in fact, most of them have been so easy that we are kicking ourselves that we didn’t do them sooner. And, happily, most have brought rewards far beyond reducing waste – which you’ll hear all about in a future piece! How many of these things do you do already – and how many could you adopt?
See you next week! - Elise
