What Is Low Waste Living?
Are you wondering what all the hype around low waste living is about? Low waste living is just another way of living with more respect for the environment. People who want to reduce the amount of trash they make on a daily basis are doing it to protect the environment for future generations.
Low Waste Living Tips
It’s actually pretty easy to start living a low waste lifestyle. And don’t feel like you have to go all in on it. Any little change you feel you can make is absolutely worth doing and does have a positive impact!
Stop using plastic straws.
This is easier than you may think. All you have to do is invest in some stainless steel or glass straws for your smoothie cup and your water bottle. They aren’t expensive, and they’re not hard to clean. Stash a telescoping stainless straw in your purse to use when you visit your local soda shop or go out to eat.
Carry your own coffee cup.
By taking your own coffee cup to your favorite daily haunt, you save on the cup, lid and sleeve. And this is ridiculously easy to do! The hardest part is that you’ll have to wash it before your next trip.
Ditch plastic produce bags.
Start using reusable produce bags. Not only do they reduce waste, they’re actually much better for your fruits and vegetables than plastic bags. Plastic doesn’t allow produce to breath like reusable mesh or fabric bags do.
Even if you start with just one of these low waste living tips, that’s a move that will pay in more ways than one. Another way to help the environment is to recycle things like baby wipes containers.
