Deel 4. Plastic Supermarkt.

Vandaag gingen we naar nog een supermarkt Delhaize, om te kijken hoe het daar met verpakkingen gaat (nou, eigenlijk omdat vandaag geen andere winkels open waren).

We hebben 42 producten gekocht. Daarvan bleken 16 volledig in plastic verpakt en nog 5 hadden deels plastic in de verpakking (zoals dopjes of dekseltjes). 50% van de boodschappen waren dus in plastic verpakt.

Wel goed was dat bijna geen groente en helemaal geen fruit in plastic zat. Er waren ook papierzakjes aanwezig om je fruit gratis in te pakken en geen plastic zakjes.


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.
