Plastic Containers to Minimize Use of Plastic Bags
Every Sunday, my SIL is the one going to the market to buy our supply for the whole week. I just make a list of the things that I want her to buy and leave some money on the table Saturday night so by Sunday morning she can get it. While I’m still sleeping, she’ll be on the market buying all the chicken, pork, veggies and meat. She already know what to buy for me so I don’t need to instruct her much.
Since the government is already asking people to lessen or not use plastic bags anymore, SIL is already bringing some plastic containers where the fish, meat and seafoods will be placed. The veggies are usually still put in plastic bags but I guess it should be put in a bag instead soon. I really like this way as we can minimize the use of plastic bags that can clog our esteros and they will take hundred or so years to melt.
I think there are many cities or municipalities that are implementing this no plastic. What about you, what do you do to lessen the use of plastic bags?
