Hello, My Beautiful Earth Loving Humans!
I’ve been really failing at this whole “posting every Wednesday” thing, but it’s almost a new year, so that means I get to do the whole “new year new me” junk and try it again.
Today I want to talk about apparently the rareness of a zero waster who’s NOT a vegan/vegetarian . I’ve been thinking about becoming Pescaterian-someone who eats seafood but no other meat- but I haven’t 100% made up my mind plus I want my boyfriend to decide to cut his meat consumption on his own. The whole controlling another human being isn’t really my thing but I do make suggestions. I want to bring this up because one of my main waste causers while grocery shopping is the meat section. I ask butchers if they can put it in a jar I have for meats, I have separate ones for separate meats, (one for seafood, one for beef, one for pork etc etc). A lot of butchers look at me funny and say it’s against health code. I know this is not true for I used to date someone who worked in the meat department I asked him, plus I googled it. I’ve had more luck at local grocery stores than at chain stores.
I wish that meat eating zero wasters were more accepted in zero waste communities, and I wish it was easier to be one in the zero waste life style.
What are your thoughts about this?
