Always try to shop fresh, local in season organic produce and (if you’re not vegan) pasture raised + grass-fed meat, poultry, fish and dairy. No one is perfect and plastic is hard to avoid in certain situations but I cannot stress enough to RECYCLE all glass and plastic containers if you can’t repurpose them in your home.
Change doesn’t happen over night but we can try to be mindful and practice a less wasteful way of living, one day at a time.
