Zero Packaging Project
An online performance blog about using zero packaging for 6 months.
For Zero Packaging Project, I bought nothing in packaging of any kind. No tags, containers, twist ties, fruit stickers or bags, certainly no styrofoam, shrink wrap or plastic containers, and not even paper bags or glass containers. Not zero waste, where you reuse and repurpose, but zero packaging from the get go.
