I’m quitting plastic.

This week I’m making an effort to minimise the amount of plastic I use when it comes to food shopping. I understand that some plastic packaging is necessary because most produce is imported into Ireland (and the UK). Plastic seems to be the best way to protect fragile fruit as it’s transported over long distances.

Recycling plastic is good but unfortunately, not all plastics are recyclable so I want to do more. While I know I can’t completely avoid plastic because most produce comes wrapped in it (and my beloved grapes are always encased in it), I’m going to try to avoid it as much as I can.

The following documentaries inspired me to cut back on plastic. Check them out!
