My experience with my #reduceplastic challenge pt 1

Since deciding to reduce my plastic consumption starting in September, I have done a bit of research and thinking.

My first quest is to find alternatives to noodles and chocolate packaged in plastic.

So far, I have found out that there‘s a company from Austria called Wolf Nudeln which produces noodles packaged in paper/cardboard AND they offer vegan noodles (good old-fashioned durum wheat noodles ;)).

Also, I found a blogpost about chocolate without plastic wrapping, stating that there are some brands which use a bio-degradable plastic wrapping. The author even tried the bio-degradation for herself by burying the wrapping in her garden for some time and she was able to confirm the company’s claim.

Here‘s the blogpost: https://einbisschengruener.com/2016/02/14/plastikfreie-alufreie-nachhaltige-vegane-schokolade/

I will visit the organic supermarkets that we have in town to see if they offer one of these brands. So far, it seems like good alternatives can be found.
