I’ve been participating in The Frugal Girl’s Food Waste Friday for almost 4 years.
(And hosting alternate weeks for just over 2 years)
Here’s my first ever post which was dedicated to my amazing Gran.
During those 4 years I have focused on reducing my food waste, to the point where it is minimal.
This was helped by sticking to my No Waste Tastes Great routine.
But as with everything in life, things need mixing up from time to time.
The first week of September I took part in Zero Waste Week. My objective was to reduce the ever increasing mountain of non-recyclable plastic packaging that was growing in my fridge, and kitchen.
The week went well, and it made me think about how I could change my routine to reduce plastic waste as well as food waste.
I’ve started naked shopping. Not literally of course. The weather’s a little on the chilly side in the UK for that kind of thing. And even if it weren’t, we Brits are rather reserved.
I’ll be posting about my new routine in more detail soon, but I wanted to use today’s post to declare my commitment to reducing non-recyclable plastic waste going forward. You’ll be very welcome to pull me up on unnecessary packaging in my Friday Fridge!
Blogging makes you accountable.
My local butchers, and farm shop, is seeing much more of me lately. And my basket, and reusable containers. This was one naked shop earlier this week.
I’m shopping more frequently, which I don’t mind. It’s actually helping to reduce food waste as well as plastic waste.
But there’ll be more on my new routine soon.
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
The celery will be chopped and frozen to save it going to waste.
(can you see the Aldi Bavaria Beer? That’s for a Girls’ Night Out tonight. Not all 4 mind, just 2. It’s ‘Bring Your Own’ at the local Curry House)
There was waste. One mouldy slice of bread. Not really my error – someone put bread (in plastic) in the fridge (for some reason), and then took it out. That’s a recipe for disaster if ever I saw one!
Please do join in, here in the comments, on your own blog or out and about in social media.
Don’t forget to use the hashtag #FoodWasteFriday – so we can all find one another!
