zero waste, Zero Waste Food?

Zero-Waste Coffee Beans from Starbucks

Today I finally achieved my goal of zero-waste coffee beans. Every time I went grocery shopping with every good intention of bringing my old coffee bag to refill I forgot. So I have a few paper coffee bags saved up. Well today I remembered! I thought it would be easier to bring the bag into Starbucks instead of my Mason jar. They did offer to give me my beans in a new bag but I insisted on them using my own. Starbucks uses a scale and a scoop to weigh the beans so it doesn’t matter what vessel you bring for them to put your beans into. They do not need to find out the tare of your container so I found it saves a lot of hassle. I put the filled paper bag into my purse this morning and for the rest of the day it smelled like delicious coffee. Mmm… I’m looking forward to tomorrow morning and brewing a fresh cuppa Joe.

My next zero waste food missions hopefully will be loose tea and Purdy’s Chocolates.

Have a great day,

Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
