Making one small change at a time can make becoming eco friendly loads easier. Lots of small changes add up to a big difference.
The spring onions I buy from the supermarket were grown in Egypt. I'm not sure where the ones I buy from the market are from, not England though because all the English produce is labelled. There are some serious food miles attached to my little green onions, so I want to get the most out of them.
It's the easiest thing in the world to replant spring onion scraps. I store my spring onions in a mug of water in the fridge door, which keeps the roots nice and juicy - if you don't do this then you might need to add a step, and stand the cut off bits in a little water for a couple of days to get the roots rehydrated. Cut off about a centimetre of the white from the base of the spring onion, make a little hole in a pot of compost, poke the spring onion scrap in, cover the roots as best you can. Keep the pot watered and pop it somewhere nice and sunny, like a windowsill. You can keep adding rooty scraps to your pot as you go, until it's full. Take out any that haven't worked (it can happen to anyone!) and use that space to regrow new onion scraps.
You can cut off your regrown spring onion greens and add them to all your yummy salads and meals!
