Hi folks!

With the upcoming April event for AVTTS, I have a small request:

Could you please take a couple of minutes to email me your three favourite alternatives to plastic; something you use or do almost every day, that you've been able to make a habit out of.

Many thanks!

Great question Gail!

Bulk buys: Buying grains, nuts, seeds, coffee beans in bulk, in re-purposed jars, bags or containers

Also, hardware and other goods where possible I choose bulk (nails, screws, etc.), or the product with the least packaging 

Refills-refill laundry soap , dish soap, shampoo, moisturizer at a “re-fillery”!

No packaging- Clothes and linens shopping almost exclusively at Thrift/second hand/consignment  stores

1. I use waxed cloth instead of Saran Wrap; I roll them up and keep them in a mason jar on my counter so I see them. 

2. Use a dinner plate to cover bowls in fridge

3. I seek out the toilet paper sold in paper rather than plastic (it’s sold at shoppers- Royale brand I think
