Shop local rather than online to minimise packaging. Blend fresh tomatoes rather than buying tinned. Buy from bulk food stores, bakeries and farmers markets using reuseable bags. Take your own containers to the deli counter. Get fruit and veg box deliveries to home or work - consider Aussie Farmers Direct or the Organic Collective. Own a reuseable cup, water bottle, cutlery set, and consider a stainless steel or glass straw. Say no to packaged items, disposable straws, soy sauce pouches and sachets. Sew your own reuseable produce bags from old sheets. Compost or visit www.sharewaste.com to find people willing to take your scraps. Use a plate over a bowl to cover leftovers in the fridge or use beeswax wraps in lieu of plastic wrap. Reuse the jars you buy and remove the labels with eucalyptus oil and natural fibre dish brush. Use a teapot and compost the tea leaves.
