European Week for Waste Reduction 1

Primeiro dia  da Semana Europeia da Prevenção de Resíduos (19 de Novembro)

First day of European Week for Waste Reduction  (19 November) (http://www.ewwr.eu/en/project/main-features)

Nesta semana (19 a 27 de Novembro) vou registar todas as embalagens de plástico que compro tentando evitar ao máximo comprar algo que venha em plástico.

This week (November 19-27) I will register all the things I buy packaged in plastic.But the aim is to avoid as much as possible to buy something that comes wrapped in plastic.

Comprei apenas um item embalado em plástico. Leite de soja.

Bought only one item packed in plastic. Soy milk.

No mercado comprei tudo sem sacos plásticos e reutilizei duas sacas de papel. Comprei pão mas levei-o na mão e recusei a saca de plástico.

In the market, I bought everything without plastic bags and reused two bags of paper. I bought bread but I carried it in my hand and refused the plastic bag.

Comprei castanhas assadas que vieram dentro de um saco de papel (reciclável).

I bought roasted chestnuts that came in a paper bag (recyclable).

De resto não precisei de nada, logo não comprei nada embalado. Mas já para prevenir a necessidade de comprar, congelei espinafres e couve flor em frascos de vidro.

Besides that, I did not need anything thus I did not buy anything packaged. But already to prevent the need to buy, I froze some spinach and cauliflower in glass jars.

Problemas: / Problems:

Pão / Bread

Na minha padaria ainda usam sacos de plástico em vez de colocar o pão em sacos de papel. O “Pingo-doce” daqui também coloca os pães em sacos de plástico. Recusei a saca. Dica: Para a próxima trazer um saco de tecido ou de papel quando for comprar pão.

In the bakery next  to my house, they still use plastic bags instead of putting bread in paper bags. The supermarket “Pingo Doce” also puts the breads in plastic bags. I refused to take the plastic bags. Tip for me: Remind to bring a cloth or paper bag next time I need bread.

Leite/ Milk

O leite é comercializado em embalagens de plástico. Mas para ultrapassar este problema é fazer o leite em casa. (Já fiz de soja a semana passada, esta semana estou a pensar fazer de coco).

The milk is distributed in plastic packages. In order to overcome this problem is to make milk at home. (I already made soy milk last week, so this time I’m thinking of making coconut milk).
