Take the #wastefree challenge this year!
I don't usually like to start the New Year out with a cleanse (nor should you). If you're the same, and looking for suggestions for a different goal that is extremely significant for the environment?? 🌍
May I suggest Waste Free shopping? 🛒
This is something that I started this current year and really want to get more involved and diligent about❗
DID YOU KNOW⁉️
We use 100 billion plastic bags per year (only 1% being properly recycled).. That's 12 million barrels of oil to make those... Meanwhile, it's being estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish 🐟
HOW TO START⁉️
I started with not buying paper towels anymore and using cloth wipes. It takes getting used to but honestly has reduced trash probably the most.
Next I stopped using produce bags all together. I loathe those little bags..
I then tried to get rid of plastic baggies in the home... This one was difficult. I would use beeswax sheets to wrap cheese in or eco bags from @mindbodygreen for snacks and sandwiches (love their boxes Btw if you're looking for a place to start slowly!!). I still use bags... And hate ever time I do. I gotta get more eco bags.
Bring your own bags (they're cheap! Stock up)
Refuse the receipt (no plastic no BPA)
Bring mason jars or heck, old pillow cases to put bulk or produce in!
I encourage you to be more conscientious about plastic use and start with ONE replacement. That's it!
