Cooking without scissors

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/siteProfessional


“Nowadays you can no longer cook without scissors”.

I once heard this sentence somewhere, I do not remember exactly where and when, but it regularly haunts my mind. And in the context of my intention to shape my life in a more sustainable way, I decided to explore this a little further. For a week, I photographed all the plastic packaging of the ingredients I use for my dinner. This was confronting! Right, apparently I cannot cook without scissors, so I come to the question: why is there so much plastic around our food? And, more importantly: can it be done differently?
