Single-use plastic, low-waste, zero-waste, ethical, sustainable, etc. These are words that are floating all around the internet and they can seem very intimidating. I know it is hard to know where to start when making changed to save the earth. I want to give everyone some easy and simple actions to do their part in saving the earth.
Keep on the go essentials in your car or bag so you don’t have to use single use plastic.
- reusable straw
- reusable water bottle
- reusable cup for coffee or tea
- reusable utensil set
- reusable bag for groceries
- reusable produce bags
- reusable bulk bags
- to go containers for left overs
Some other simple things you can do are to make your own products instead of buy them. There are so many great recipes out there to try! I have made my own toothpaste and I have made my own dry shampoo
You can even eliminate your waste in your hygiene care super easily! Here are some easy swaps you can make!
- shampoo and conditioner bars
- body soap bars
- face wash bars
- safety razor
- reusable cotton swabs
- washable cotton rounds
- reusable period products (reusable pads, menstrual cup, period underwear, etc.)
- natural deodorant in biodegradable or reusable packaging
- solid perfumes
You can also make a huge difference in your wardrobe!
You can choose to avoid fast fashion and find name brand clothes for cheaper from thrift shops or online second hand shops like Poshmark, depop, Thredup or ebay! You can also research sustainable clothing brands!
Also, do your part and resale your clothes or give them to local thrift shops
I hope this gives you a place to start if you felt stuck on where to start in your efforts to save the Earth.
