At Salvos Stores, we are all about keeping items away from landfill! If you don’t need to put something in a plastic bag, don’t! Bring your re-usable shopping bags with you when you go to the supermarket or shopping at your local Salvos Stores. Recycle as many house hold items as you can, and if you’ve got the space keep a composter in your garden for your food waste.
When we go supermarket shopping, there are always lots of excess packaging on lots of our foods and we always seem to place our fresh fruit and veggies in plastic bags to bring them to the check out. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could eliminate this unnecessary waste?
A Berlin based duo have done just that, created a zero waste supermarket. They sell upwards of 350 products which are dispensed into refillable containers! How cool does this sound!
