How do you guys deal with bread spreads…we are vegetarian/vegan and all that stuff comes in plastic.
And how do you replace saran wrap? In case there are left overs…

We are a two person and two feline house hold, we work out, the cats work from home ;-). We have been careful to reduce our waste for years but now we try to focus on reducing plastic waste.
Ellen and Pedro’s personal blog:
List of plastic items REFUSED this week. (Yay!)
Bag with potatoes, we found a degradable bag
Total items collected: 24
1 milk bottle
3 tetra pack
1 plastic water bottle (from the airplane)
1 container toilet refresher
1 cap of deodorant
1 container of butter
3 packages from veggie burgers
3 packages from veggie sandwich spread
1 bag of chips
7 yogurt containers
1 bag with general wraps of ‘stuff’ and some bags of cat food (100gr)
What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
We seem to be running out of stuff, there is just sooo much plastic out there
What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?
We bought oven-ready bread, we could just buy fresh baguettes which come in a paper bag.
What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?
Most of these things so it seems
What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
We are going to a different supermarket now which has organic veggies in bulk with biodegradable bags.
We also try to buy as little seperately packed items as possible.
What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
It is getting difficult to find more ways to reduce our plastic waste. Tips from the community?
