Meet the Team: Katie from Mundaring & Bassendean

Meet our newest member of the Mundaring team, Katie🌻

Hi! My name is Katie, I started shopping at the Wasteless Pantry in March 2020 and joined the lovely WP family in December 2021.

I love going for walks and camping in nature. I play the violin and am looking forward to training as a Veterinary Nurse in the future. I was born and raised in London, UK. Living in a big, busy city, I was concerned with the amount of waste I was contributing to but didn’t find much support around waste-free living. When I came to Perth, I heard about the Wasteless Pantry, where the team showed me how easy and possible it is to go waste-free!

My favourite WP product is the bokashi one bucket and bran. It helped make my journey of composting so much easier! I was amazed to find out the majority of my waste at home was compostable! Advice: if you’re wanting to reduce your waste, a little bit goes a long way. E.g. recycling, composting, choosing the plastic-free veg in supermarkets. Even just doing one thing that reduces your waste makes a difference and remember to congratulate yourself every time you make a change!

Our team at Wasteless Pantry are always happy to have a chat and answer any questions or concerns you have 🙂


Healthy Snickers Alternative Snack Bar

Want a healthier version of a snickers bar?

I love the combination of chocolate, gooeyness, and peanut crunch which can be recreated with a few healthy ingredients bought package free from Wasteless Pantry. Plus it is gluten-free and dairy-free!

Pick up the following from WP:

* Medjool dates

* Peanut butter

* Dry roasted peanuts

* Dark choc bits

* Desert salt flakes

Slice the Medjool date on top & remove the pip. Add some peanut butter to the inside of the Medjool date and sprinkle some peanuts on top for a bit of crunch. Add the melted chocolate bits, then sprinkle a tiny amount of desert salt flakes over the top & you’re done!
