Zero Waste Living for Beginners
Make the switch to reusable alternatives and easily lower your plastic footprint.
Start with the grocery list.
It's not hard to make a big impact! By switching to reusable grocery and produce bags, you'll eliminate a load of plastic waste. It's that simple.
Estimated Impact: Reduce waste by 700 plastic bags per year
Reduce your waste on-the-go.
A large percentage of our plastic waste is produced by on-the-go meals. Whether lunching out or bringing food from home, we tend to waste a lot of single-use plastic.
Estimated Impact: Reduce annual waste by up to 260 sets of plastic utensils, 500 plastic straws, and over 300 plastic baggies
Reduce and reuse in the bathroom.
The bathroom might be the biggest sources of waste in your home. Switch to reusable or biodegradable alternatives for items like toothpaste tubes, cotton swabs, and floss.
Estimated Impact: Reduce annual waste by over 1000 cotton swabs, several plastic toothbrushes, and several plastic mouthwash bottles and toothpaste tubes
How about the kitchen?
Plastic bags, aluminum foil, and single-use utensils? They all have a bigger impact than you might think - and they're all easy to eliminate!
Cut out waste while you clean.
Traditional cleaning uses lots of plastic! Cleaning bottles, dish soap bottles, and sponges are all made of plastic. Switch to plastic-free alternatives for a big impact.
Estimated Impact: Cut out dozens of soap bottles, dishwashing bottles, and plastic sponges every year
