I am trying really hard to dispense with plastic in the home and I have gone a good way forward to doing that but some things cause for radical changes for example ” The freezer” I freeze fruit, some meat and if I make extra of a dish then I freeze in portions …Therein lies the problem for me…

Do I use biodegradable bags or compostable bags?

How can we be sure biodegradable bags are really eco-friendly? Are they the same as degradable plastic bags?

There are independent certification schemes you can look out for that give you peace of mind about the claims being made. But it means that you must do your research…

We will start with your kitchen…

  1. I agree and I have been trying to do the same thing…I prefer paper bags, not plastic, at least trees are renewable and are degradable, but not plastic. What if we all brought our own cloth bags to the grocery store…I am truly thinking of do that. It takes a very, very long time for plastic to degrade. Thank you Sally for the great, great post and so needed. The oceans are filling up with plastic and killing sea life. Karen 🙂

  2. The information found on the internet and on television showing the huge amounts of plastics that are littering our land and our seas is frightening. I want our planet to be beautiful and safe for my grandchildren. This was an informative post. Thanks for sharing, Sally. 💕🤗💕
