Habit Shift - Pack a Zero Waste Snack

How to Pack a Zero Waste Snack in a Tiffin by Conscious by Chloé

I do not keep a written list of things I want to buy, but I do have a mental list of things I would allow into my life if I stumbled upon them.

I was not on an active search for a tiffin, but I did want to replace the one that was stolen from my car a couple months ago.

And, lo and behold, after a work date in South-East Portland last November, I popped into my favorite vintage store to check out whether my friend Carley was working there and see what was new in stock.

I grabbed 2 cozy sweaters to try on, and then went into the back room where the best treasures are kept. And there, sitting on a side table, was this vintage tiffin.

It's not the most convenient, it's not leak proof, it's not packable, but it's... not the point.

I have a precise idea of how I want to use it. To pack zero waste snacks when I'm invited to a potluck or a party.

How cool would it be to show up with it and then display each container with delicious snacks I'll have made or purchased from the bulk aisle of my supermarket?

I also picture putting little sealable stainless steel containers in the middle and fill them with hummus or a nut dip.

This is way too exciting.

Best $10 I've spent that month!
