There are ‘zero waste’ initiatives popping up all over Amsterdam right now. One store that is leading the way for the local movement is The Little Plant Pantry. This is a store where you can bring your own jars/containers and fill them with bulk items which are sold by weight. They sell everything from foods, teas, coffees, oils, grains, wines, spices and nuts and also have a 100% natural cosmetics section.
We bought a few staples for the lunch week at The Little Plant Pantry, like rice, cous cous, peanuts, plus something a little different for the team to try – Kimchi! Did you know that when the first Korean female astronaut Yi So-Yeon travelled to space South Korean scientists perfected a special low-calorie version of kimchi for Yi to take with her?
