Great article Larissa, thanks for sharing the experience plus the tips and tricks.
One of the things I’m beginning to notice, in myself and others, are the personal biases that we all have and how big of an impact they have on us. If you can get past the fact it came from a bin, or that the aesthetics aren’t ‘perfect’ then you’re golden. I look at things from the microbiome point of view, and they don’t care where it comes from or what it looks like, so why should I?
Also, as you point out, its probably a healthier option and also means you’re not tempted into buying rubbish from inside.
Thanks again and happy hunting!
