One way that we can live a zero waste life is that I shop in bulk. We bring our own grocery bags, cloth bags for dry food, jars for wet food, produce bags and buy milk in glass jars. We do not bring any plastic into the house from the grocery store. We also love shopping bulk because we get a huge variety. Each week we change our type of dessert, pasta, cereal, bean, coffee, bread etc. We don't have any food wastage because we buy only what we need for a week or two. The picture is a snap shot of the dry food in my pantry. The honey and boxed food in the top left is prior to my switch to bulk.
