Less Waste Grocery Shopping

Grocery shopping since we started to lower our waste… Our girls go to forest school on the Thursday, so we stop off at the greengrocers on the way home for our shop (I kinda love it as early years #homeeducation for the little kids too, Marley loves helping and counting out what we get ❤). I meal plan, then buy enough fruit and veg for the whole week (to supplement what we’ve grown at home).⁣

There is a bakery next door where we can also get #plasticfree (gorgeous 😍) bread. I buy enough for the week and freeze in the paper bags what I won’t use in the first few days, taking it out the morning of the day we will need it 👍🏻. We get bulk wholefoods delivered every couple of months, and nip into Tesco or Aldi while the girls do gymnastics once a week if there is anything else we need, trying to get tins, jars or cardboard packaging where we can.⁣

I try and minimise visiting shops, especially big supermarkets as much as possible as I don’t particularly find it an enjoyable experience – its such a time (and money!) sap if I don’t meal plan and end up popping in every few days for bits we need! I’d love to hear more about how you shop for your family, if you are making any changes or wanting to? Its all so dependent on our time / circumstances and what’s accessible locally, but hopefully increased pressure will mean more supermarkets focussing on sustainability in the near future! L x

Plastic Free Organic Veg Boxes From Abel & Cole

Absolutely in love with these blood oranges from @abelandcole at the moment, so delicious 😍 We’ve just started getting our fruit veg from them again and I forgot how good it was, the salads are amazing! Super hard to weigh up wanting to buy organic wherever we can, with minimal plastic packaging but also on a budget (we eat so much!) – we’ve managed to cut back on lots to allow us to spend that bit more on plastic free organic fruit and veggies, and are trying to keep costs down on our fruit and veggie shops by growing as much as we possibly can ourselves and eating seasonally, I’ve been particularly loving growing microgreens, herbs and salads on the windowsill these past few months, but can’t wait til the garden gets properly started and we don’t have to buy much in!
