It's no surprise that humans continue to produce waste for our planet, and waste seems to increase every year. If you want to become a more eco-conscious person, all you have to do is follow these simple rules to have a zero-waste lifestyle.
- when your clothes start to wear out, instead of throwing them away, learn how to sew and repair them.
- buy local and buy in bulk, which means less packaging AND you know where your food is coming from.
- for good hygiene, buy reusable not disposable products.
- use natural, multi-use products for home cleaning. For example, vinegar and baking soda, which are very versatile cleaning products.
The transition to making your lifestyle more eco-conscious may be a little challenging at first, but once you get in the groove of things, you'll wonder why you haven't always been living like this!
