Lent Plastic Challenge: Days 6 & 7

This week's Not Quite Plastic Free veg box!
Day 6:  It was back to work after the half term.  On Sunday evening I boiled up a big pan of ribollita (following Nigel Slater's classic recipe) for a plastic free work lunch.  Hurrah for the staff room microwave!

Nicola Holderness, who is documenting her progress with this challenge on Twitter @njholderness, alerted me to the possibility of plastic linings in tin cans.  Yikes!  Will have to check next time I open a tin of tomatoes or beans - by which time it will, of course, be a bit late.

Day 7:  Today marked the arrival of our fortnightly veg box , including a bundle of purple sprouting broccoli in a plastic bag!  I'm going to have to have to recycle it.

Top Tips

  • A panful of soup can provide lunch for a few days.  
  • Share your plastic free experiences with your friends and follow others on social media.
