Cut Down On Plastic

Here's a simple way to cut down on your plastic consumption in the kitchen.

One of the easiest ways to cut down on your plastic is to simply shop at the bigger stores and here's a little experiment we tried:

We sent two of our employees to buy the same ingredients for our Sweet Potato Rösti from a small local supermarket chain and larger supermarket chain. In the bigger stores, you can buy individual ingredients rather than packaged ones. As you can see, the sweet potatoes come without packaging, as do the chillis, the herbs, and the avocados. This quite clearly demonstrates the difference between the smaller and larger stores. So, to start cutting down on your plastic, try venturing out to the larger stores or greengrocers - it's worth the journey.
