A few weeks ago I wrote about the exchange of going plastic free and I questioned if the benefits outweigh the costs. However today I concluded that the benefits definitely outweigh the costs! I was feeling a little under the weather and just couldn’t face going to the farm shop to do my usual shop. Instead I just popped to the small supermarket in our village.
I bought some ham, salad and cheese. I also bought some chocolate biscuits. Everything was wrapped in plastic. The shop was cheap compared to my usual farm shop buys, but it tasted awful! It’s only been a month and a half since we went plastic free, but our taste buds must have changed. The ham just tasted like water and the cheese tasted of nothing. I didn’t even like the biscuits as I’m used to just eating homemade ones these days.
It might cost us a bit more being plastic free but gosh, it tastes so much better!
