Quakers Oats and Scots Porridge come in cardboard boxes and are plastic free.

Some of the expensive organic oats come in cardboard boxes but I have never tried them.

You can get them in a paper bag from Lidles very cheaply indeed. They are a bit woody but edible.

You can buy them loose from Whole Foods Market and some weigh and save type shops


You can find other plastic free products here.


BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.

  1. Ah thats a shame – about the porridge I mean. But good news about the oat cakes. Not completely deprived of the tasty stuff then. I keep meaning to try to make oat cakes. I do love them. Will have to wait until I get an oven. Thanks for dropping by.

  2. I know porridge is the ultimate healthy, nutritious and waste free breakfast. Only one problem… I can’t abide it! I do however use pinhead oatmeal to make my own waste-free oat cakes. Much like pasta, once you start to make your own it is hard to go back to the over-packaged bland cakes sold in most shops.
