WASTE-SAV­ING TIPS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.
