Up until now we have been living in a disposable world which has been having catastrophic impacts on our Eco-systems and Global Warming. Our increasingly busy lifestyle means we are choosing convenience which inevitably comes packaged, usually in single use plastic. I too have fallen victim to the convenience of on the go snacks and food. While I do my best to reduce the amount of waste that comes through my door, we still do on occasion opt for the pre-packaged snacks. We ensure the packaging does not go to landfill and instead we collect it and send it to REDcycle for recycling.
I started my Low Waste journey about around a year ago after watching a series of eye opening documentaries showing the impact that our wasteful habits are having on the environment, in particular the impact of single use plastics.
