Threads of Change: Carry a container (or 2!)

Ooops, I’m a bit late to my September pledge this month . Been a bit side tracked by other priorities like holidays & travel 🙊😉. 

We are still on the road (& in the air) for another 3 weeks... so I’ll be continuing on with the travel theme. I’m pretty down pat with my reusable water bottle and hunting out all.the.refill.stations. 👌 But have found myself on several  occasions without a vessel for food, bulk buys and food-on-the-go (with the exception of Mr 5, who has been spot on remembering his reusable ice cream tub & spoon at every opportunity 😂🍦 #priorities).

So this month I’m committing to carrying a container too ✊. Back home I usually have all the bags in the car and prep all the containers I need when heading to the fish market or bulk buy shop. But it’s much harder to be organised on the road and realistically not always possible (bags already at full capacity 🙈).

So here’s to finding some new travel tips n tricks this month...got some nesting pots for starters and will track down some collapsible /expandable pots too. Geez gonna need a new bag just for all the carry-abouts! This ‘living lighter for the planet’ is definitely witnessing a heavier load shifting to my carry-all. Am I witnessing a redistribution of the burden of consumption back to me - the consumer? Interesting. 🌍💚♻️.
