The Wasteless Pantry

Ideas to get you started on your Wasteless journey toward a Zero Waste Lifestyle:

Many of the ideas that follow are old hand for a generation or two ago, before we jumped on the path to disposable living. Had we of realised the devastation then maybe we could have chosen sustainably convenient over wasteful in the lifestyle choices we made. Leading a Zero Waste Lifestyle is about living simply, choosing waste free options and getting back to basics like:

  • Produce bags instead of disposable plastic bags to go waste free
  • Bring your own containers to refill for meat, deli and bulk foods – we have a video of how to do this
  • Use leaf tea and bulk bought ground coffee
  • Stock up on your reusable containers 
  • Reduce the clutter so that you know what you need
  • Find alternatives that reduce waste
  • Attend local community events to develop your sustainability skills
  • Get clear on your sustainable food priorities

This workshop is brought to you by the City of Canning
