I'm Ann and I run Eco AnniePooh. I'm a Mum of 4 and a bit obsessive about trying to cut out our plastic use! Its been easy so far but I've a long way to go. I set up Eco AnniePooh to make it easier for you and me to reduce our waste, it doesn't have to be inconvenient.
For those of you who don't know where to start, I say just start!! Pick one thing, like those little plastic bags for weighing fruit and veg. Refuse to use them!! Buy or make little produce bags to use instead.
Or tea bags, switch to tea leaves. You can get a little reusable metal ball that you put the tea leaves in and make a cup of tea just as easily as using tea bags.
Take a lunch box or any container with a lid that you have in the house,to the butcher or meat counter to buy your meat. It’s about new habits and thinking a bit differently, using whatever you have at home and reusing again and again!
Our new Zero waste shop “&Keep” has opened on Hillside Road in Greystones, Co.Wicklow. You’ll find all our reusable products and dry foods package free so bring your clean container to refill. We also have refillable detergents, shampoos, conditioner, shower gels.
See you soon.
