Looking to start living a waste-free life? Here is some eco-friendly way for a sustainable home will help you make the switch to reducing the use of plastic and other harmful materials. Remember, small changes can have a big impact on the world!
5 ways to start a waste-free living.
1. Reusable Shopping Bags
Always say “no” to plastic, bring a reusable/foldable shopping bag with you all the time. There are so many beautiful tote bags and grocery bag, why would you want to carry a plastic bag instead? While many grocery stores will sell reusable shopping totes for a couple dollars which is a great option too. I also recently ordered this Macrame Tote Bag for the grocery shopping which I love it a lot. There is a lot of beautiful option online so it’s very convenient.
2. Glass Storage Containers
Glasswares are really the best invention on the earth – it’s safer than plastic in all way. And you could use it for a lifetime. We love to use glassware as it’s heatproof with multifunctional purpose. Most importantly it doesn’t absorb smells as compared to plastic and it helps keep food clean, fresh and tasty for a longer period.
3. Beeswax Wrap
Say goodbye to the days of using plastic wrap to store everything! This Beeswax wrap is reusable, antibacterial, plastic-free, and compostable. It will also keep your food nice and fresh! They usually come in different designs and sizes – while the ones that we are using are sustomi beeswax and beeswrap from the UK.
These days your favourite kitchen-ware should be all made out of bamboo. From what we studied bamboo is technically a grass and can be cut without killing the plant. They could continue to grow from the same root. This makes bamboo a highly renewable, eco-friendly resource. So why are we killing the trees when we could replace with something better and cheaper? For those planning to change your kitchenware or even furniture, consider Bamboo as your first choice.
Leading a waste-free living, we should start appreciating the little that comes to us. Hence, gardening and plant your own food is the most efficient way to kickstart with.
Besides switching to an eco-friendly product, some additional tips on sustainable living are said no to “one-time waste“. Stop using straws when you could drink from the cup. If for hygiene reason you could start to consider opting for bamboo straws or metal straws. Also reducing the time you use water, recycle and compost when you can, walk or take public transport, and be mindful.
