Bulk food shopping for a better planet
February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Shopping at a bulk food store can be a little daunting at first, if you’re not familiar with it. But it can be a great way to cut down on food waste, reduce excess soft plastic packaging and shop more sustainably.
By refilling your own containers, jars and bottles with just the amount you need, you can create a pantry that is inspiring to cook and eat from.
Join waste and sustainability educator, Laura Monisse, for an engaging workshop guiding you through practical strategies you can implement for a better pantry and better planet 🌍.
Together, we’ll explore:
- 🗑 The issues of excess packaging and waste
- 🛒 The benefits of bulk food shopping
- 🍫 What items you can buy in bulk and where you can shop for them
- 🛍 How to get set-up or enhance your bulk food shopping routine
- 🏬 What a trip to the bulk food store involves
- 📋Tips and tricks to create an organised, systemised pantry
- 🍽 Finding inspiration to cook and eat from your pantry at home
This will be an interactive session. You’ll have the opportunity to share your experiences, learn from fellow participants, and develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to reduce excess packaging and shop in a more conscious, connected way!
Attendees will also receive a special gift pack to help get started with zero waste shopping and reduce food waste.
This workshop will run for between 1.5-2hrs in length.
Seats are limited so reserve your spot today!
