Leaving the packaging in the shop, 126°

This is going to be quite a challenge for me but I am now getting fed up with taking plastic off absolutely everything. I think I will put something sharp in my purse so that I can cut off the plastic covering on vegetables and things I buy in computer shops.

Or better yet, buy from a farmers market, where things don't come with any packaging at all! If there isn't one around, there are sure to be grocers who use less or minimal packaging in your community.

Buy in bulk from your local food co-op!

In India, people - even my life-mate - look at me strangely, when I sometimes carry the storage box to get groceries (rice, pulses). At neighbourhood groceries, many items are sold straight from the shop's bulk containers.
