A truckload of packaging ...

Are you also annoyed about the large piles of packaging material that end up in your trash bin after paying a visit to the supermarkets?

Read the article
One family, one month, 50kg of packaging. Why? in the Observer 2006-01-29.

In short:
A lot of the packaging materials used are not necessary
Leaner and eco-smart packaging is quite possible
Laminates are usually not recyclable
It takes a lot of energy and resources to make packaging

Do not buy prepacked fresh fruits and vegetables etc
A loose weght requires less packaging and you probably
will only buy as much as you actually will consume.

Want a afternoon snack with yoghurt and jam?
Buy a 1 litre yoghurt pack and a selection of jams or fresh fruit (organic!).
Probably a lot tastier and with a lot less packaging ( and sugar!)
