Attempting to be waste free has its challenges – single use plastic is everywhere. In our day to day lives we are well versed in minimising our plastic waste but we were recently faced with the challenge of camping waste - free. Camping seems to bring out the worst in peoples’ plastic consumption – lots of takeaway, snacks, bottled water, disposable cutlery and plates. Below I've shared how we tried to limit our single-use plastic waste whilst camping over Easter.
Any food prep would not be complete without a trip to The Source Bulk Foods – this is where we buy all of our grains, seeds, spices and superfoods waste-free. We stocked up on nuts and seeds to snack on as well as bought all of the ingredients for our bread, protein balls and muesli.
Take your reusables with you! For us, this was our water bottles, cutlery, plates and our gold KAPPI stainless steel straws.
Don’t fall into the trap of having to buy takeaway coffees - Every morning we boiled water on our camp stove and made long blacks with our Wacaco minispresso coffee maker (awesome if you are shattered about not being able to take your coffee machine with you on the road, like my husband). It makes an awesome espresso and you honestly could not tell the difference from our coffee machine at home, but this bad boy fits in the palm of your hand.
However, even with all of our organising, we still made mistakes and there were a few sources of plastic waste we struggled to find an alternative to with the equipment we had on hand:
So we had an epic trip, ate lots of yummy food AND managed to keep our impact on the environment minimal – I would love to hear how you minimise your waste while you are travelling.
