Deel2. plastic supermarkt

Gisteren hebben we bij nog een supermarkt geprobeerd om boodschappen te doen voor een paar dagen zonder te veel plastic verpakkingen te kopen. We gingen naar BioPlanet, een biologische supermarkt. We hebben 51 producten gekocht. Thuis gingen we tellen hoeveel van deze producten volledig in plastic zijn verpakt – het bleken er 12 te zijn, veel minder dus dan bij Albert Heijn! Nog 9 producten hadden kleine plastic details, zoals dopjes en stickers. Dat betekent dat er 30 producten waren zonder enig plastic! Een mooi resultaat, goed zo BioPlanet!

Grappig dat ze hier gisteren ook in het nieuws over hadden, dat er in Nederland veel te veel plastic verpakkingen worden verkocht. 4 plastic verpakkingen per persoon per dag, gemiddeld!


We are a family from Amsterdam who moved to Antwerp to homeschool our gifted son because homeschooling is illegal in The Netherlands. The blog, started in March 2016, was originally created to register our homeschooling experiences, mainly about our son and later also about his little sister as she gets older. Over the years, however, most of my entries have gravitated towards exploring together with Simon as he has developed an insatiable passion for programming, math and science. We have continued to expose him to a great variety of subjects: he has been learning piano and Chinese since age four, has been taking private lessons in French since we homeschool, he likes swimming. Yet it looks like math (and in a broader sense - patterns and systems) is his true calling. He has been teaching himself programming, machine learning, math and physics in a very disciplined, devoted fashion, and has already impressed several professionals with his depth, determination and perseverance. To learn more about Simon also check out his website Simon's younger sister Neva also has her own blog at where she is mainly planning to write about her concerns around plastic pollution and climate change.
