TLDL?: In my quest to further reduce my plastic consumption, I’ve started making my own yogurt.
I explain in this episode how I’ve begun to make my own yogurt so I can stop throwing yogurt pots into the plastic recycling that aren’t really being recycled. I break the episode down by looking at what I’m replacing the store bought yogurt for, what is actually being thrown out, which yogurt maker did I buy and why and lastly, how much money am I saving?
Originally I was spending $100USD a month on store bought greek style yogurt. Now I’m aiming to save by buying the milk and some yogurt to use as a starter culture.
500grams of yogurt $4.60
8 bottles of milk (225ml each) $9.40
8 batches (possibly) in a month $9.40 x 8 = $75.20 dollars
TOTAL: $79:80 a month
Currently a 20% saving which I’m hoping to reduce even further by shopping around for the milk that is on discount often.
