What are your resolutions for the new year? Have you thought of making a few “Zero Waste” adjustments?
If so, then continue reading for a few inspirations. These are just some of the excellent ways you can embrace Zero Waste in 2023.
Vow to only use reusable bags and containers for shopping.
The switch from plastic bags to bringing your own containers makes a tremendous difference regardless of how you get your groceries and other consumer items. There are plenty of ways to do this, ranging from cotton tote bags or string bags to refillable/reusable containers.
If you’d like a preview of how this works when you visit us, then check out our section on what is a refillery?
Become a pro at composting.
Would you like to cut the number of trash bags you consume in 2023? Then you’ll want to explore composting, and maybe even master it. Some landfills across America report that about 30% of waste disposal comes from organic material. That’s all compost-worthy and literally low-hanging fruit if you want to reduce the amount of trash going to garbage sites..
Focus more on bulk buying.
Whenever you buy in bulk, you consume less plastic and paper packaging materials. Better yet, this also is a great way to save money on your grocery bill.
Identify at least one item for a Zero Waste swap.
Sometimes, folks psyche themselves out by trying to do too much too fast. Instead, you could avoid overwhelming yourself by selecting one or two items for a Zero Waste swap. Usually, this means swapping an inorganic material for an organic alternative. You could, for example, switch from buying plastic toothbrushes to using one of our handy bamboo toothbrushes for less than $5.
Those are our picks for outstanding Zero Waste resolutions. Can you think of one we missed? If you can, then don’t hesitate to put it into action!
