Ok, so you are on your way to a waste free lifestyle, you’ve made the decision, and now you are heading to the shops to do a grocery trip…
And you get there…
And your soul dies a little when you realize just how much everything is wrapped in plastic!!!
I’ve been there, just feeling super frustrated that society doesn’t make it easy for us to consume less waste.
But a few places do! And here is a list of waste free stores in Cape Town, where you can get most household items with no waste at all!
