- Reduce food waste: Plan your meals, make a shopping list and buy only what you need. This way you will avoid buying treats or foods that you don't need and that you may not end up consuming.
- Shopping cart, reusable bags and sustainable packaging: Using the shopping cart is the ideal solution for shopping sustainably. We also recommend that you always carry reusable bags with you for your purchases and that you use reusable containers to store your food, instead of plastic bags and disposable containers. This helps reduce the amount of single-use plastic produced.
