My name is Mary Kat and I started this blog in 2011 when I was 16. My number one passion is food. I live for cooking and baking. The majority of foods in a regular grocery store have plastic packaging, which is something that I didn’t use to think about much. Then I learned about the environmental problems caused by plastic pollution and felt compelled to do something about it. I tried to reduce the amount of waste that I was producing. It seemed like most of the trash I was generating was from the kitchen, so I started blogging about recipes that used ingredients free of plastic packaging. In the beginning I focused on using ingredients that didn’t use plastic packaging but now I aim for using ingredients that don’t have packaging of any kind. I’m not able to get there 100%, but I usually get pretty close.
When I started this blog I was a high school student living with my parents, and they paid for groceries. But now I’m in college. A student budget makes plastic-free/waste-free living very difficult. I had to start buying some ingredients packaged in plastic because in many cases they’re much more affordable, but after I graduate and get a job I’ll go back to buying the kinds of ingredients I had access to in high school.
