Sounds easy enough right? To minimise your waste by lowering consumption of single-use plastic, unnecessary packaging, and other not so earth friendly things humans do. It is not until you start to think about the amount of waste you produce that you realise how wasteful we are as individuals and as societies.
It happens so innocently and slowly creeps into everything you do. Like when you order a (food) takeaway and it comes in a ‘convenient’ plastic container; or when you order a drink ‘to-go’ in a single-use plastic or paper cup. When you go shopping and use a single-use plastic bag, and evens when you buy your shampoo and conditioner in a plastic container.
All those things add up.
But you can make changes! small changes can go a long way! I started replacing all single-use plastic water bottles with reusable water bottles made of insulated metal by Klean Kanteen. These beauties not only look nice, but they keep your drinks chilled/warm for longer and help you reduce the number of plastic bottles you consume.
‘Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans. It’s equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world.’ Plasticsolution.org
Companies like https://unwrpd.com make the zero-waste life transition so much easier. Earlier this month they contacted me and offered me to sample one of their subscription boxes!
“We choose products and companies with eco-credentials we can stand behind. Additionally, all our packaging is 100% plastic-free; recycled, recyclable and up-cycled where possible.”
The products they offer are all natural, environmentally friendly, chemical free and cruelty-free. They are a happy tree hugger eco-warrior best friend! They also offer one-off gift boxes which are the perfect treat this Christmas.
I also love the fact their packaging matches their company ethics. No plastic at all. And the box is completely recyclable (check your local council for full details)
Happy Environmentalist Holidays!
