A couple of months ago, my dear friend Lauren gave me a goody bag from the Package Free Shop for my birthday. After visiting the flagship store together in Brooklyn, we were elated to find a a place that served as a one-stop shop for so many of our needs, without any of the single-use plastic. Today I’m sharing my to-go food items, but they also have a wide plethora of health and beauty products, cleaning supplies, and plenty of home goods.
Items pictured: airtight steal container, reusable bamboo cutlery set, stainless steel straw, reusable silicone sandwich bag, reusable organic cotton wipe, and the fun drawstring canvas bag that came with the gift set 😀
An advocate for the Zero Waste Movement and avid blogger, Lauren Singer founded her store with the mission of reducing waste and providing alternatives to single-use plastic products. The products sold by the Package Free Shop are sourced from individuals and brands dedicated to creating a positive environmental impact.
So far I’ve been really happy with these products. As a lover of food, thus someone prone to eating out at restaurants and ordering takeout, I’ve been putting in more effort to be conscientous about how I consume food. When I was younger, I never thought about the impact my eating habits had on the planet. So. Much. Plastic. I’ve cut back on takeout dramatically, and regularly pack meals in reusable containers.
I encourage you to take a look at your daily habits and see if there are any changes you can make for Earth Day going forward. Singer outlines 13 Easy Zero Waste Resolutions that make a great start 😀
