Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid when You Go Zero Waste





The best thing you can do at the beginning of your Zero Waste Journey is to START. 
At the same time there are 4 main MISTAKES that you really need to avoid so that your Journey will be easier and smoother. 
Avoiding them will help you to reduce a massive waste of time, money and energy especially when you are a beginner. 


🙅‍♂️ MISTAKE 1: 

Decide to go on Zero waste in One go trying to change your whole life overnight. 



🙅‍♂️ MISTAKE 2: 
Becoming a Sustainable Shopaholic. 
This is a tricky one. It’s very tempting to start buying all the super amazing eco-friendly products out there. We can even feel proud of yourself, until you realize that you are not solving a problem and, even though you are buying more sustainable items, you still are buying something that you don’t really need. 

🙅‍♂️ MISTAKE 3: 
Throwing out unsustainable belongings. 

🙅‍♂️ MISTAKE 4: 
DIYing everything (You Cannot DIY Everything) but it doesn’t mean I DIY everything. In fact, DIY isn’t a sustainable way for most of us. If you can just try simple and easy DIYs and see how it goes for YOU! 

I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to start the right way. Once you will be aware of the mistake you need to avoid, you will enjoy the change, see what you really need and live in the perfect spirit of Zero Waste. 

What about you? What’s the mistake you made at the beginning but you’re SO GLAD you sorted it finally?
