Supermarket shopping/ No plastic
This morning we set off for the supermarket to see if we could do some shopping without buying anything in plastic. We bought 2 glass bottles of milk, Laundry detergent in a cardboard box and soap without packaging. That all went well until I was in the pet food isle and everything was in plastic. Well, the fresh pet food. So we had to buy our dog food in plastic. We took our own bags and left feeling like we had done well. Charlotte even chose a little chocolate that was in cardboard packaging( Smarties) which was hard because she really wanted the Caramel Koala. We finished our morning by buying a Metal Bucket which will become our new bin. We are lining it with newspaper. So, at the end of the day, it may have been a little more expensive to buy alternative products but I think that they are better products so it balances out at the end of the day.
