Eco tips for reducing food use plastic

Big Greenies:
A good tip for reducing excess plastic is to buy local, greengrocers and butchers use less plastic than supermarkets. Even just one trip to the local shops per week will make a difference. Write to your supermarket! And check to see if the milk man delivers in your area. It’s convenient and makes you feel good – sign up if you can with Milk and More.

Little Greenies:
When you’re choosing things to go in your packed lunch, how about using less plastic? You could have a box that you put yoghurt in from a big carton rather than individual pots, for example.
