Sustainable Table – Old School shopping  

It’s time to start preparing for the holidays. Make it special, but make it sustainable and try to limit the amount of waste you produce. Everybody loves saving when buying groceries, so why not reduce your rubbish and save money by buying in bulk!

 

Here are 5 good reasons to start buying in bulk:

 

  1. Plastic Free – We all need to take care of our planet and reduce the amount of plastic we produce. So how about we start with plastic? Usually people recommend to use BPA free plastic safe, however, the plastic used as an alternative can still be just as harmful, so choose a glass bottle instead!

 

  1. Less waste – Use reusable rather than disposable containers when bulk buying to cut down the amount of rubbish produced.

 

  1. Buy what you need – Bulk-buying gives you the opportunity to control how much you buy. You scoop in whatever you need. This helps you save money as you are only paying for what you need!

 

  1. Natural Ingredients – The more natural ingredients we eat and use, the better it is for our body. And natural ingredients come with less packaging.

 

  1. No toxic preservatives – Avoid putting unnecessary “nasties” into your body! Try to avoid eating or applying products with toxic preservatives. Reading the ingredients on packaging can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to preservatives, some of which can’t even be pronounced.  Preservatives are also responsible for allergic reactions in many people, particularly those with sensitive skin.

Comercio Sustentable, Una Práctica que Beneficia al Medio Ambiente

 

Ya es tiempo de empezar a prepararnos para las fiestas decembrinas, hazlo de un modo especial, de manera sustentable y compra a granel para reducir la cantidad de basura que se produce.

 

A todos nos encanta ahorrar al ir al supermercado, así que por qué no evitamos comprar comida empacada y compramos a granel. Aquí te daremos 5 buenas razones para hacerlo:

  1. Reducir el uso de plástico – Todos necesitamos cuidar el planeta y reducir la cantidad de plástico que producimos. Por lo general se recomienda utilizar plásticos libres de BPA, pero de cualquier modo es mejor utilizar vidrio.
  2. Se produce menos basura – Cuando compres a granel utiliza contenedores reusables en vez de desechables, esto reducirá la cantidad de basura que se produce al comprar comida.
  3. Compra sólo lo que necesitas – Comprar a granel te da la oportunidad de comprar sólo que necesitas. Puedes llevar control en lo que compras, esto te ayuda a ahorrar dinero pagando sólo lo que vas a requerir.
  4. Incrementa el consumo de alimentos naturales – Ayudarás a nutrir tu cuerpo al aumentar el consumo de productos naturales.
  5. Productos sin conservadores tóxicos – Si quieres evitar poner ingredientes dañinos en tu cuerpo, evita el uso de conservadores químicos. Leer los ingredientes en las etiquetas de los productos puede resultar abrumador, en especial cuando se trata de conservadores que no sabes ni cómo pronunciar, además algunos de ellos pueden causar ciertas reacciones.

I’m a dietitian working in the field for more than ten years. I’m passionate about this, and I have completed several studies in US, Mexico and Spain. These days, life saturates us with toxins. This generates all sort of diseases, reactions and deficiencies. I believe nutrients are the best allies to stay healthy, but there are so many sides that contribute to it. My intention is balancing health in, out & around. I love being able to share tips with everyone on how to achieve a balanced life and a healthy lifestyle. That is why I’m starting a project named Katy’s Balance Life. (https://instagram.com/katianas/) I work at Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics, and I love it. I’m the Training and Development Executive. Year by year, I get to travel around Australia, Singapore, Mexico and any other new country where we stock our products. Traveling is my life and I have learnt many health tips along the way from all our customers. My main responsibility is to ensure that everyone who works with our product is well trained, so they comprehend the benefits of our ingredients, understand a healthy lifestyle and the versatility of our product. I hope you enjoy my tips.
