1. Buy your groceries in bulk
Save a few trips to the grocery store and avoid plastic waste by buying your groceries in bulk. Stores like Slowood, Edgar and Live Zero all sell spices, grains, nuts and other items in bulk—just remember to bring your own containers.
“When you bring your own container, you don’t have to buy packaged foods. It’s a way to save the world and a way to reduce waste as well”—Dora Lam and Chen Kai-ping, founders of Slowood
