It’s true. Zero-waste living is easier than you think! We can all do our part to save the planet and save each other, especially while we are Amazon shopping our spare time away. Assuming you’re already recycling those brown Amazon boxes, there are other easy ways for you to hug the planet and thy neighbor today.
Simplify your cleaning supplies. Dr Bronner’s Castile soap can be made into just about anything. Buy a glass bottle, vinegar, water and your set with an all-purpose cleaner that is clean and safe to use everywhere in your house.
Replace disposables. We are a throw away society and it’s all ending up in our landfills. Reusable shopping bags are finally turning mainstream but did you know that you can also buy reusable food storage bags (great for kid snacks) and cute reusable napkins and paper towels. A super fun way to add some fun to your next dinner table too.
Rehome and rebuy. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Check out Facebook marketplace before you buy brand new especially for things like large kid toys, and exercise equipment. Don’t forget to donate and pay it forward too. The more we keep from our landfills the better.
There are so many more ways to be a greener human.
But hoping this little jump start gets your creativity sparked and those reusable napkins on your table.
