By the time your fruit and veg reaches you from a supermarket it could have flown thousands of miles, while being packaged in single use plastic. One of the biggest sources of waste for the average family is the supermarket shop. It’s also one of the biggest causes of overwhelm for those looking to start living more sustainably.
By swapping to suppliers like Abel & Cole and shopping in your local zero waste shops, even partially, you can start to reduce your food shop waste – both packaging and the actual food you throw away.
Doing smaller more frequent shops and meal planning are also great ways to ensure you buy just what you need.
