🏮Bulk, package free food deserve a spot at CNY 🏮so why not replace hampers full of plastic and instead send the beautiful sight of glass jars full of nuts to your loved ones? Hampers are a popular sight during CNY, but they’re often mostly a mountain of plastic and packaging with not much to enjoy (hmm filler products that you don’t really want) - not all the time but, often 😅 I like how @originbulkstore have made low waste, heathy CNY gifting easy. And incredibly simple: fresh nuts and healthy snacks in reused glass jars delivered to the doorstep. Everything here is to be enjoyed 100%, and nothing goes to the landfill. Plus, nuts are a great respite from all the salt and fat we’re gonna be snacking on 😏and heck it’s popular with the aunties and uncles. Glass is arguably the best thing to store food in being an inert material, are practically infinitely reusable, and infinitely recyclable (but have limited recycling facilities). The jars are sanitised and reused and the cloth bag they come in are reused over and over again for deliveries. And if you’d like to, you can return it so that they can be reused again. Lets try and skip the waste this Chinese New Year. No more expired boxes of products from hampers lying around years later. Or yet another 8 plastic containers of stale cookies after the season is over 😝 🧧🏮🧧 #makegreenmainstream #lowwaste #zerowaste #sustainablecny #chinesenewyear
