I NEED TO BE THE CHANGE.

Learning To Be A Bit More Eco...

When I started on the journey of creating The Full Freezer, I had no clue what a minefield I was entering. I just wanted to help myself and other home cooks to have a less stressful dinnertime.

The potential environmental knock-on from meal prepping could be huge though.

 

The big advice from the top batch cookers' is always to freeze flat in ziplock bags to save space, but what about the environmental impact of this? Not to mention the copious amounts of packaging that supermarkets fling our way…

On the flip side, my journey has taught me that food waste has proven to be a bigger harm to the environment then single-use plastics*. 

And so my conundrum begins... I am no eco-warrior (and if you are, I'm keen to learn, but please don't criticise or lecture), but I am a Mum, who does recognise there's a problem and who wants to take steps to be part of the change. 

As part of my Full Freezer journey, I am striving to educate myself as to how I can best limit my negative impact on the planet - wading through the marketing to find the truth. I will share what I find here!
