Asked for no cheese. Added rugula
Ordered a side of grilled veggies to top it up.
Making it really awesome if not it’s a rather sad pizza modification asking for just no cheese

Normally we avoid unnecessary snack waste. This is biodegradable packaging, meaning it will break down in proper compost conditions (not in landfills)
In “x” amount of time (depending on type)

Honestly don’t know if the more

vikas The reality is most of the stuff that people are buying that’s #biodegradable ends up going into landfills. Couple of reasons for that. Most people don’t compost themselves, and many people simply think that it’s biodegradable and their work is done, not realizing that if they toss it in the trash it’s just going to end up wasting away in a landfill. Sad but true. 4 likesReply
vikas But.. the flip side is, that if people become conscious and make better choices, even if they don’t actually move the needle, there is a potential mind-shift in the person that makes a difference in how they live and that can make a huge impact. 4 likesReply
monicamarcos Totally .. I’m just seeing how many people are vegan for the environment but not questions vegan food packaging for the environment.
But you’re so right about it being a shift.

I hope we see more conversations on abillion about the topic to bring consumers aware, and hopefully more companies will provide more environmental packaging options 💚1 likeReply
vikas @abillion10 worth doing an article on this topic!Reply

Soft soap, not as strong smelling as I would have liked but overall good basic hand soap

Vegan & Not tested on animals.
