It’s plastic free July errybody! Just in case y’all forgot.
I know it can all seem a bit overwhelming, which is why this July we are publishing some more hot tips every week! This week is the top five places to shop this plastic-free July – organised by category of course.
Fruit and Veggies
The first choice, is, of course, Local Crop on Hunter Street. They don’t wrap their produce in plastic (yass) and they also provide the option of ordering a veggie box to be delivered straight to your door.
If you can’t head into Local Crop, Harris Farm is most definitely your next best bet! Skip the plastic bags when you’re buying produce and use mushroom bags for all of your loose produce and snacks.
I’m not here to argue about eating meat vs. not eating meat and what’s the point of cutting out plastic if we’re going to eat meat etc.
When you go to the butcher, they usually wrap whatever you’ve just bought in plastic and then paper. It’s the butcher way. But why not BYO container and ditch the plastic.
Have a chat to your butcher first and get to know them a little more. It’s ok to get to know your butcher ya know. Sellers Quality Meats on Mitchell Street in Merewether are all for the container vibe and will be happy to help you out.
Both Pork Ewe Deli and the Essential Ingredient will place your delicious dairy snacks in your container, as opposed to wrapping them in plastic. This is a great win for those who love dairy. I know I do!
Scoop, Source, Naked Foods, wherever you want to shop, all of these places are great!
You can buy tea, cereal, snacks, honey, bulk goods, health foods, kombucha, whatever you’re hankering for (that’s also good for your body) you can find it here.
And what’s better, is that there is no plastic! You can byo jars, containers etc (just get them weighed first) and fill. To your heart’s content!
Now go forth young plastic free-ers and enjoy this glorious month!
