Tips on Living a Zero Waste Life
I came across this amazing quote on Pinterest the other day and it totally spoke to me! Let’s face it, attempting to live a zero waste life can be intimidating and it’s important to remember that every little effort you make truly helps.
Ditch Buying Single Serving Size Meals
Not only will your wallet thank you, but so will the earth! When you start cooking meals with fresh produce and ingredients you often start to buy less and less single serving and packaged foods. Less packaging = less waste!
Start using Cloth Bags and Totes for Produce and Groceries
More and more states are starting to charge for plastic bags at grocery stores, which gives us all a little more incentive to finally start bringing our reusables! LIFE TIP!!! Try keeping your reusable bags in the trunk of your car or right by your door so they're easy to grab when you’re heading out. Check out these reusable bulk & produce bags!
Begin using Reusable Straws and Utensils
An easy zero waste tip is to simply say no to plastic utensils and straws when you’re going out to eat. Try keeping a set of reusable utensils in your bag (there are even compact sets made just for this) that way there easy to grab when you need them!
Start using Cloth Towels and Napkins
Start using less paper towels and paper napkins by switching to cloth. The average American uses 104 rolls of paper towels a year, by switching to cloth you’re not only saving the earth from hundreds of pounds of waste, but you’ll be saving major money at the store. Don’t want to go out to buy reusable kitchen towels? You can simply cut up an old t-shirt or bath towel to make the perfect sized kitchen towels for you!
