Being frugal is also very environmental – We are not exactly ZERO waste yet however this week we only produced one bag of waste. Bottles, cans, plastic and paper go to be recycled. I am now thinking how can I simplify this further, how can I buy less glass and plastic.
well I don´t take plastic bags in the shops even if they are free of charge!
I have asked companies not to send me their magazines and membership info etc – these offers and magazines always end up straight in the rubbish pile anyway.
I have bought simple cotton bags to take with me to the grocery store so I don´t have to use plastic ones to put my carrots in !
I have gone through my wardrobes and cupboards and given them a really good and merciless clear out.
Now I am thinking out making yoghurt and even butter at home to reduce the amount of plastic and cardboard further in our house -we´ll see, there are some good how to clips on YouTube, how hard can it be !!
