Don’t go anywhere without your BYO cutlery wrap, water bottle, bag and coffee cup (even if you can’t use it at all cafés due to Covid, they still come in handy in the workplace). Zero-waste lunch is ON!
BYO reusable produce and shopping bags - get a set and keep them wherever you will remember them – add them to your shopping list or add a reminder to your phone. Clean, refillable containers or jars for bulk food purchases. Choose to refuse pre-packaged meat, fish and deli products, particularly those sold on polystyrene trays.
Pop together the perfect package of reusable; tumblers, straws, plates, cutlery and condiment containers. When packing lunch consider buying fresh, local and plastic free.
On the Go
Collapsable or reusable tumblers in the glovebox, BYO shopping bags, water bottles and cutlery wrap. Also, check with your local cafe or restaurant if you can bring your own container for take away food.
Avoid cling wrap by storing and packing food in reusable containers. You can also purchase reusable silicone bowl toppers to cover food in bowls, pots and pans, or even get crafty with an upside down plate, reusable cloth cover or wax wrap. Choose to refuse plastic bin liners and line the bin with a few sheets of newspaper, use compostable bin liner bags or use a ‘naked bin’ and simply wash it out as needed.
Make friends with a bamboo toothbrush, trial a shampoo or body bar, buy plastic free cotton tips or get a metal safety razor with recyclable blades. Also, consider alternatives to single-use makeup wipes and sanitary items.
