I've done it! My first 100% zero waste day of the week. So it is possible and surprisingly normal.
Breakfast was toast, butter and jam to accompany my essential mug of tea. Lunch was the leftovers of yesterday's dinner, carried to work in a recycled takeaway container and reheated in the microwave. Dinner was tortilla (aka Spanish omelette) with sweetcorn and beetroot. I don't do puddings midweek - just a piece of fruit.
I baked some chocolate chip cookies for my daughters' lunchboxes tomorrow. Chocolate chips come in plastic packets so I used bars of Divine milk chocolate cut into pieces. I've saved the inner foil wrappers to make recycled Christmas cards - my half term project.
There was another article in the Evening Post. It was visitor who told me about it. He also told me about Scoopaway, a natural and organic wholefood shop on the Gloucester Road, where you help yourself to cereals, pulses, dried fruit, nuts etc. It's a fair way from where I live but I could get there by bus. Sounds worth a visit.
