Currently on the blog: Unpackaged, Four Ways.
There are lots of different ways of buying your food sans packaging. But in this post, I present four alternatives to the health food store, as seen through my European travels.
WARNING: THIS POST IS A CANDY FOR THE EYES! #Bulkisbeautiful

Package-free shopping does not take more time than regular shopping. I timed myself today: 36 min for my weekly grocery run. Difference is, I do not go in the middle aisles of the grocery store. I only do the perimeter (that's where the unpackaged and least processed goods typically are). Note: Photo taken for the attendee of my talk in 🇲🇺 last week, who asked what my trunk looked like when I return from 🛒 shopping 😊

After lots of travel (and a wonderful #zerowastetoursa) it still feels good to be home.

On my way home from an amazing #zerowastetoursa, a 2-day journey back to California. During my first layover, I visited Emthonjeni in the township of Zandspruit, north of Johannesburg 🇿🇦. For every weight of recyclables that a resident brings in, he/she gets credits to spend towards clothes or household items in the swap shop. What a wonderful incentive to reduce litter and provide necessities to those in need! If you live in the region, bring your donations!

Sur le chemin du retour d'une belle tournée de conférences en Afrique, un voyage de 2 jours vers la Californie. Pendant ma première escale, j'ai rendu visite à Emthonjeni dans la township de Zandspruit, au nord de Johannesburg 🇿🇦. Pour chaque pesée de recyclables qu'un de ses habitants ramene, il/elle reçoit des points pour s'acheter des vêtements/objets dans la boutique. Une belle initiative pour réduire les déchets sauvages et offrir des nécessités aux démunis. Si vous habitez la région, déposez-y vos dons!

This is how my day started, and very early. A third attempt at ballooning and now a dream come true!

The highlight of my day yesterday was planting a tree with Mamvi (left) who is supported by @ftfa to grow fruits and veggies in Alex, a township in Johannesburg. Food and Trees for Africa also sponsored my talk last night (a sold out event!).
