Use Your Own Everything...

With just a little bit of preparation, we can avoid pretty much all take away food packaging. Taking our own tubs for our Thai or Indian take outs, taking our own bowls and plates if we are taking away lunch from a cafe just around the corner from work. It's just habit, that's all.

We love laid back mornings Flight Coffee Hangar with a cuppa or two & a beautifully presented breaky - like this parsnip hash with poached egg, bacon & kumara chips on tahini sauce β˜•πŸ³ Plus, for the rest of July, they're giving away a daily coffee & weekly coffee beans for the best photos taken here with #flightcoffeehangar βœŒοΈπŸ’™ #lovewelly"
