Bread Sticks and Other Baked Goods

Here’s an easy way to REDUCE your plastic footprint:

REFUSE to purchase bread products in plastic bags. Bring your own cotton bag or other container to the bakery and fill it with your favorite baked goods.

We bring our own cotton bag to the bakery at the start of Mileel Street (behind Ibrahim’s veggie shop). There we can buy bread sticks, crackers, fitteer, and fino sandwich rolls – all without the plastic bags. The bread sticks and crackers are usually not bagged so it is easy to fill our bag with how much we want and then weigh and pay. Sometimes the fitteer and sandwich rolls are already in plastic bags. It just depends on our timing. But if the bread is already in plastic bags, we REFUSE to buy it and will return at another time to purchase the bread straight from the trays. (Just FYI, the bread sticks and crackers are bought by weight but the fitteer and sandwich rolls are bought by the piece.) And although we don’t usually buy them, I imagine you can also bring your own container to purchase the cookies and other sweets available at the bakery.
