Yes, I have given up biscuits!

But before you gasp and clutch your bosoms, wonder ing if I really am going biscuit free, let me assure you I am not making that much of a sacrifice โ€“ at least not in the sweet, tea time, snacks line. No, giving up plastic wrapped, sweet bickies is easy peasy thanks to the wonderful Queensgate Market, Huddersfield.

The loose biscuit stall there sells perfectly wonderful biscuits to suit all tastes – including sugar and gluten free. Just choose what you want and they get given to you in a paper bag. Of course, if you want to be greener still, you can take your own reusable produce bags. They are much nicer than most brand biscuits, and for that reason alone well worth a try.

Recycle Biscuit Wrappers

But what to do if you don’t live in Huddersfield? Well, it’s not a perfect answer, but Mc Vities do run a biscuit wrapper recycling scheme. You can read about itย here.

Why not a perfect answer – recycling does not make using plastic that lasts forever to make a throwaway, so-called disposable product. You can read about why we don’t recycle plastic here.
