It’s Zero Waste Week from September 4th – 10th, but we believe the world should be about zero waste every day of the year. That’s why Holy Lama is proud to be a 100% recyclable and low waste company. Zero Waste Week urges us all to live in a more sustainable way, wasting less (with an aim to waste nothing) and recycling more.
We can, and must, all endeavour to make changes to the way we live, but sometimes it’s the little things that can add up to something that makes a larger, genuinely positive, impact. One small change would be to swap out the raw and dried herbs and spices in your cooking and adopt Holy Lama Spice Drops® instead.
With Spice Drops, there’s no preparation needed; no peeling, grating, grinding or chopping and best of all, no waste or leftover product to dump into your bins! Our award-winning, vegan products not only cut the faff but cut the waste too!
Holy Lama Spice Drops® also retain their fresh taste for up to three years after opening, compared to dried herbs and spices that lose their flavour quickly. Often, they are stored for years in cupboards across the country, just to be thrown away after discovering their flavour is long-gone. A report WRAP stated that in the UK alone, around 10,000 tonnes of herbs and spices were thrown away every year, costing £150million in terms of avoidable waste!
Start reducing food waste today with our Spice Drops.
