We all know single-use packaging is bad, bad, bad but when it comes to food shopping it’s still hard to avoid it. Organic grocery company Abel & Cole is doing its bit by launching Club Zero, a first-of-its-kind refillable delivery service. It’s swapping out single-use packaging on some pantry items for reusable, returnable pots, which’ll be collected every week ready to use again. It’ll be just like when the milkman used to come round with the glass bottles, except it won’t be milk and it won’t come on one of those little floats.
The Club Zero pots are made of plastic, but before you screech about that not being eco, they are light, durable, easy to clean and require less energy to transport, plus these ones are made of polypropylene, which can be easily recycled once they get too knackered.
That’s just one swap you can make to live more sustainably, and there are a bunch more here.
Launches fully at end of February 2020
