Fruit And Veg Box Schemes - A Convenient Solution To Reducing Your Food Packaging Waste
Subscribing to a fruit and veg box scheme could be a good place to start if you’d like to reduce the amount of plastic waste you produce. Not all of us have the time or will to shop around for the best zero waste options, especially when as consumers, we have become accustomed to convenience and not all of us have a local farmer’s market or greengrocers. Therefore a win/win situation could be to have your weekly fresh produce delivered right to your doorstep, minus the excessive packaging normally provided by your local supermarket. I have listed a few box schemes based in the UK but if you live elsewhere, then be sure to check online to see what fresh produce delivery services are running in your own country or vicinity. To my knowledge, all of these schemes use minimal packaging and only when necessary.
