Best Way To Start a Low Waste Lifestyle
How do you start the zero-waste process? By slowly working through all the supplies you have before buying anything new.
When you're ready to make purchases, research the company, are they doing their part for the environment? Where is their product made? If it was produced or manufactured far away, can you find it locally? If not, isn't the company at least fair trade and grown sustainably? Lastly, what is it packaged in? Are there any plastic components?
The idea is to avoid contributing ANY materials to landfill, while using recycling as a last resort.
Whenever possible, use your OWN bags or containers as packaging, or find packaging that is compostable, like paper or cardboard.
