If someone had told me in high school that I'd spend my college years blogging about sustainability, I'd probably have laughed at them. Yet, here I am, sharing my jar collection. Yes, a jar collection. 👼🏽 I've been shopping at the farmers market and taking my cotton bags to put produce in. After it's weighed and purchased in my cotton bag, I bring it home and transfer it to a jar.
The reason why I don't always take my jars to the market or to a health food store is because the extra weight of the jar isn't always reduced from the price, especially because of the language barrier sometimes. 🌱 Also, if I'm doing grocery shopping in the city or at stores that are far away, jars tend to break so cotton bags are often a better option when it's further away.
So far I've got chia seeds, quinoa, couscous, white sugar, oats and lentils in jars. On the sides I've also got two different types of loose-leaf teas. ✨
Every day I'm learning how to be more sustainable, my next goal is to be more sustainable on campus & @greenofficeinitiativetiu
is a sustainable initiative run by students for students of my university. It gives tips via the Instagram page. If you'd like to be more sustainable on your campus, be sure to check them out for some campus-related sustainability tips! 🌻
