Sustainable swap share

Today’s tip comes from Renata, Environmental Scientist and Research Director at Dots.eco: “Eat more home-cooked meals! They are usually less wasteful than eating out, and produce less garbage than take-away.” Submit another Sustainable Swap by replying to this email, and we might feature you next month here 😉


P.S. If you’d rather not get these emails, just reply with “no thanks,” and we’ll completely understand! 😌

Game on,
