Shopping for Fruit and Veggies:
Feel free to keep fruits and veggies loose in your cart or basket😇 and don't be tempted to use plastic bags😈 or make sure you have your reusable produce bags on hand to fill - they are so light you wont need to empty them at checkout to pay for you produce and fruit.
Remember, you'll wash your produce at home, but the plastic will live on in the environment for decades 😪
🙅♀️ Avoid products with excess packaging. (Think produce or cheese slices packaged in plastic trays and plastic wrap.) When in doubt, leave them and only buy fresh!
Try our your local farmers market or fresh grocer and look out in the neighborhood for veggies and fruit garden swaps. This will help you shop seasonally , get to know your local community and potentially you will have better produce too and save money !
