During the lockdown, we felt genuinely grateful to the essential workers who managed the essential home deliveries as we followed strict guidelines and avoided travel to the supermarkets.
We have always been a conscientious family, driven by reduce, reuse and recycle principles. However during the lockdown, our food waste reduced further significantly. Value on hard to get commodity is quickly felt and appreciated. As a kitchen gardener, I have huge respect for the farmers and food growers who til the land for the food, which leads to our plates.
One thing I discovered during the lockdown was oddbox which delivers food which is in surplus, or not sold in the supermarket either due to size or shape. We have been delighted with the produce and many of our friends appreciated the introduction (plus a free £10 voucher for the first order, pm me for a new customer link if you're interested).
This made me wonder, what changes we are open to make to our lifestyle post lockdown? What positive impact we can have on the environment and sustain the changes as a family?
As a community interested in net-zero I would welcome your thoughts and comments.
