Triggering a Change

Chicken wings in a re-usable container? Madness!
Chicken wings in a re-usable container? Madness!

This could be the most important photo you see all year!

My heart was pounding and I hid under my hat like a criminal who was planning to commit a crime as I waited for the queue to disperse in front of the deli counter in a supermarket.

When it was all clear, I chose an employee who looked kind and competent and gingerly asked if I could buy 2 kilos of uncooked chicken wings and have them put straight into my re-usable container. The lady behind the counter looked startled and said she had to ask the manager, she returned a few minutes later saying it was OK.

She set the scales to deduct the weight of the container and stuck the barcode sticker straight onto the outside of my re-usable plastic container, which I then scanned at the self-serve terminal.

I feel like I have just changed the world. Stay tuned for more plastic reduction updates.
