Called my mom in Germany to tell her about our life and mentioned our decision to go plastic free. She laughed and said that is what she always did. If she goes grocery shopping with her woven shopping basket, she goes to the bakery, the butcher and the produce stand. If needed, food gets packaged in paper. There is no plastic packaging.
I do have to put in quite some effort to make this happen. For her, it's a no-brainer.
Challenge of family of 4 living the WWMFD ('What would Michael Foster do?') way. Inspired by our friend, the Climate Warrior Michael, we are doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint at least 10 % each year by going plastic free, travel less, being a more mindful consumer.
