Waste Titbits: One for the Carnivores

This year I’ve embarked on a low-plastic waste challenge for my family. Every fortnight I’ll be posting a low-plastic WIN that I’ve had in Alice Springs. Please email me at Rachel.oleary@alec.org.au if you have any good ideas you’d like to share!

Solution: Plastic containers for the carnivores

I’ve had a few challenges buying meat from the big supermarkets, as their equipment and pricing stickers aren’t set up for customers to bring their own containers. (If anyone has had a positive experience, let me know!)

Milner Meats is a lot easier. They can tare your container and they do the maths by hand and they are supportive of the idea.

So don’t feel shy, the more of us that do this, the more normal it will become!
