People keep asking me if going meat-free is going to make it harder to be plastic-free since so many meat-free foods come packaged in plastic. Foods like veggie burgers, Tofurkey, seitan, tempeh, etc. But why should it? I gave up processed foods when I gave up plastic. I see no reason for anything to change now.
Fresh produce from the farmers market:
Bulk bins: Beans, lentils, split peas, all kinds of grains & nuts.
Fresh tofu from Whole Foods in my own container.
And when I want to grab something and go, I’ll just keep bringing my reusable containers. The new sushi vendor at Whole Foods didn’t want to put my veggie sushi in my LunchBots container, but I can be very persuasive when I’m hungry.
There’s no conflict between going plastic-free and meat-free. At least not where I live.
