What to Do with Plastic Once You’ve Started Zero Waste




Don’t follow any decision to cut out plastic or go zero waste by immediately throwing every single piece of plastic you own in the bin.   


So, what do you do with your plastic? Use it! 


Wouldn’t it be just as wasteful to throw out perfectly good items and purchase new things only because it was plastic? Use them up and once they are worn out, then replace them with more eco-friendly options. 


We all have several plastic items in our households that are perfectly usable. Living “zero waste” means making better, more sustainable choices going forward and utilizing what we already have. It’s not about buying more – but buying less.  


It’s not always easy and we won’t be perfect. But all the things we can continue to use, gift to others if we know we won’t use them, repurpose, repair and eventually recycle, help keep new resources in the ground.  


Try your best and do what you can.
