For our pantry, we buy food items or ingredients. Most of the time, we store it in our own jar or container and garbage or recycle (Most of them are not possible) the actual package or container, which came from the production or distribution company.
We can minimize this waste or stop it by using reusable containers when we package the items. First, food shouldn't be contained in any plastic container for health. It should be packaged in a Jar or Reusable container (made of glass, paper, cloth, wood, etc. Or green plastic, which decomposed). Then the refill box should come in a paper or cloth container or package; if not possible, only in a tin container (Which is recyclable). Then there won't be any waste. For example, some bread spread came in a glass. So, after finishing the food item we can use it as a drinking glass. It could be a mug, bowl, plate or jar.
Big companies are using a lot of effort, time and money to make beautiful containers for their products, which is not reusable, and we have to throw them out. Why are we wasting our money and damaging our planet? When we can just use reusable, easy to use in kitchen, and beautiful containers and save our environment.
