I Am Into Waste Free Packaging.... Are You?

  Tasty Meals From Around Kuala Lumpur.  I piggy back my meals with other people's order!
Above: From Ampang Point
Above: Jalan Alor
Above: Surprise2! - one saturday I came home from work and found what DH brought me - no plastic bag snacks! Successful attempt at teaching DH waste free packaging!  Cos I told him please do not buy me any snacks if he is gonna bring them back in plastic bags!!
Above: Fresh Coconut juice from round the corner from our home. Important note - only use stainless steel containers for coconut juice
Above: The guy who repaired this mini rice cooker for 2 - wahhhh smallest rice cooker he had ever seen! And we almost threw it away cos the switch component had come apart from the main body.  All that was needed to correct the problem? a SINGLE SCREW (see the big shiny new screw in the picture?) to reattached the black connection piece to the main body!  Yup! that's all that was needed to make it WORK AGAIN!
Above: all natural washing product for my face, body and hair! and they come in two sizes!
More importantly, they come in recycled PET bottles!

Above: All natural washing product I bought from Simple Organics at Taman Desa (near the specialist hospital at the entrance of Taman Desa)

Hey, this is a great post for an extended No Impact Week, Emily! Good job! I find your shampoo and soap interesting. The brand of SLS-free shampoo that I use is "Natur", and I have to be careful not to let water get into the bottle, or the shampoo will start smelling like fermented fruit juice! Ah well, at least I know it contains no strong chemicals, then! I like your stainless steel container. I use a thermos cup which is almost exactly the same size as those transparent PET disposable cups when I purchase drinks from the night market. I am a big pasar malam fan!
