A few weeks ago Blake and I watch a documentary about plastic bags. It was crazy informative, but I can’t remember the name so I’ll have to get back to you on that.
Since then we have become more aware of our plastic consumption. We have always had good intentions, like a pile of reusable shopping totes… That never left the house! Now we are working on put those intentions to good work.
Yesterday I went grocery shopping and I was so proud of how well I did at avoiding plastics! I took the reusable shopping bags, I only used one of those plastic produce bags, and I bought big tubs of things instead of little one serving containers; like yogurt!
Which also helped me to save money! Individual servings of yogurt cost about 70 cents each but one bigger tub costs
$1.79 and there are like 6-8 servings in each one!
I bought tons of fresh produce. Some organic and some not. I’m doing my best to get the organic when it’s possible, we also went to the farmer’s market last weekend! And check out this mango!
That’s siting next to a conventional mango. It’s massive! It weighs more than a pound and a half!
With just one shopping trip I saved money, used less plastic, and gave us a boost in the weigh loss department! Win!
