A Roadmap To Sustainability and Zero Waste Products
Are you being responsible with your consumption?
Taking the trash out is a hassle for all of us, but what if we told you we can help shrink down what goes in that 5 gallon trash till you are left with zero waste?
Here are some easy swaps that will cut down unnecessary waste in your daily routine, saving you the trouble of taking out the trash that often and reduce your environmental footprint!
Tip #1 - Forget About Single Use Disposable Cups
Did you know that you can prevent tonnes of plastic from ending up in the landfills and oceans just by sipping your coffee in a different cup ?
Most of the single use disposable cups are lined with plastic which cannot be recycled, so get yourself a reusable alternative for your drinks on the go so there is one less cup in your trash every time you choose to reuse!
Tip #2 - Say No To Single Use Plastic Bottles
Millions of single use plastic bottles are being purchased every minute which end up in oceans and landfills, not a single ocean left without plastic floating in it so it's time to do some damage control.
A reusable bottle is one of the easiest swaps you can make, refilling anytime and anywhere goes a long way!
Tip #3 - Replace Your Single Use Grocery Bags
Everyone has struggled with plastic carry bags tearing and all the groceries falling out at-least once, they not only lead to embarrassing situations like these but also contributes to the negative impact on the environment at a very high percentage.
Switching to reusable grocery bags will not only help you avoid such situations but also reduce the unnecessary plastic waste.
Tip #4 - Draw The Last Straw
Reusable straws are a must for your zero waste kit, plastic straws are one of the most common and yet one of the most pointless single use items, not to mention how big a risk they are to the marine life.
And let's face it, metal straws are not only durable but they also look so much better than plastic straws.
Tip #5 - Make Your Teeth A Part Of The Solution
You're probably wondering how something as simple as a toothbrush can make any impact on the environment, as silly as it may sound, your plastic toothbrushes also end up in the landfills. You can now switch to bamboo toothbrushes that have a much lower ecological impact as they are biodegradable.
