I'm a firm believer that we all have a role to play in keeping our planet healthy. On that note, here's an article that discusses 5 local businesses who are trying to make low or zero waste living easier for their customers. Personally I love Full Circle Foods and it seems each week they are bringing in new low/zero waste options. I look forward to trying some of the other businesses as well.
That being said, I also think it's necessary for us to put pressure on companies that are creating this packaging. As consumers we can demand better and more sustainable alternatives to packaging. When we do that, we may see actual changes in the industry such as Loop Packaging. Not yet available in Canada, and perhaps not an affordable option for all, it does demonstrate that change is possible.
And for those attending the Multicultural Festival today, I have always had a warm reception when I bring my own plate and cutlery to the food vendors for my meal. You may want to give that a try this weekend as well. Comment below with your favourite zero waste tips or products! #365ofgoodWR
