In a perfect world, the zero waste lifestyle would not be as much a trend as the universal way of living, which pretty much includes acquiring things and discarding them. We can all hope for such an idyllic scenario – but in the meantime, we can also take steps to bring that a little closer to reality. Thankfully, the introduction of stores that specialize in selling plastic-free, zero waste items is helping this reality along! In fact, a brand new one is set to open in Cape Town!

Nude Foods, the South Africa capital’s first plastic-free grocery store, will open at Constitution Street in the Mother City in November 2017 – and it will be a little haven for all those wishing to make a difference in their shopping habits.

In the store, the consumers will find “non-GMO, healthy and affordable wholefoods and earth-friendly body and home products – all sold by weight.” Nude Foods will allow customers to either use their own containers from home or their in-store eco-friendly packaging.

The store’s promotional video reminds us only 17 percent of all plastic we produce gets recycled and the rest inevitably ends up dumped into the landfills and into the oceans. Considering that every year, around 8.8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean and around 700 different marine species are in danger of extinction as a result, we all desperately need to take action to curb unnecessary plastic use.

Glorious be unto happy love spell the man who make me see reasons that there are still real and genuine spell casters like him. since 3 weeks now i have witness what is called heart broken. my boyfriend that promised me marriage failed me and impregnate me and leave,he dump me,he stop calling" he stop picking my calls,and he no longer respond to me. I have be looking for solution,I fall into the hands of fake spell caster,they rough me off and took my money without help.I have cried,I have weep"and tears runs out of eyes. the silentness in my heart brought me to the deepest path of failure that I lost my job. crying all day,because my life was lonely. so thanks to Dr happy who came into my life and brought me the greatest joy that was lost. i saw his web on [email protected] while browsing and I contacted him, tell him what am passing through with no doubt because of what i saw about him,was enough to believe. and i was given words of solution on what to do. i can\'t really help thinking about it i have tried to see what i can do, i manage to provide him half of the money for the spell, and he help me with the rest. after casting the spell, 12hrs later, here comes my boyfriend with a rose flower on his hand and i was even about going out,i saw him in front of my door when he sees me he knee and said he is dying i should forgive him and accept him back he was crying,i can\'t wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then" he said he is restless without me, just as the Dr happy said it will be. he brought out a ring and put it on my hand. our wedding day was scheduled,1 week after we got married. today makes it a month and we are living happily I don\'t know how to praise him enough, he has done me a thing i can never forget in my life. and i can\'t really share to myself alone, I want you all to help me praise him because if it wasn\'t for him, i already plan of committing suicide. but right now am now so happy more than i was before. if you fine it difficult to get your ex boyfriend back, contact him via..... email [email protected] also add him on whats-app +2348133873774
