Zero Waste Lifestyle: For Beginners

| Helping you reduce your waste and start a journey into a zero waste lifestyle. This life can be achieved through a few small changes.

Living a zero waste lifestyle, which means aiming to reduce landfill-bound trash to the bare minimum, is no mean feat. Considering the fact that a ‘humble’ plastic bag could take up to 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill, living day-to-day without single use plastic and other toxic, non-recyclable materials takes a hell of a lot of planning and research.

Luckily, there’s a wonderful web of blogs and vlogs there to help guide us through the journey to a more ethical, economic and eco-friendly life!

Here’s one of our favourite resources, a video introducing 10 easy ways to reduce waste, including:

  • Saying no to flyers, junk mail, merch and freebies
  • Take reusable cloth bags shopping instead of plastic carriers
  • Use glass jars to shop for and store grains, nuts and more
  • Swap disposable plastic straws for acrylic, paper or metal
  • Preserve leftovers with beeswax wrap instead of cling film
  • Invest in a reusable, refillable water bottle
  • Bring silverware from home to avoid using disposable cutlery
  • Buy a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush
  • Switch from tampons and pads to a menstrual cup
  • Read books and magazines via a tablet or Kindle.

Let us know what you think!
