Plastic-free lunching

#PlasticFreeMerton Weekly Challenge

"I'm challenging myself to stop buying lunch when I am at the office during the week, and to consistently bring in my own lunch instead. This will cut down on otherwise inevitable single-use plastic and other packaging that comes with take-away lunches (even when you politely decline the offer of a plastic bag to carry the food in). It will also save me money - which is no bad thing at all - and perhaps also be healthier!

I have managed to prepare food in the evenings for the next day without too much hassle (though I would not win any gastronomic awards!). It’s been great to think of all the waste that will NOT go to landfill as a result and I must have saved at least £20 compared to buying take out food these past 5 days!"
