MEAT/FISH

Any butcher or fish monger. Don't ask at your local supermarket (Coles, Woolsworth, Aldi etc). Just take any container with you, even if its plastic.



Remember being plastic free is about asking for no NEW plastic. Don't feel guilty about taking your old plastic for reuse.

If you live in an area with ethnic food stores, pop your head in to see if they sell dried goods in bulk. I know of a few on Sydney Road and one in Moonee Ponds (Rays Nuts, Hall Street) that does.

Most of the above locations can be found via the Bulk App on Zero Waste Home, Trashless Takeaway and in the Zero Waste Victoria facebook group.
