We’ve all seen the jar of trash someone is bragging about that contains an entire year of trash. While totally admirable, the reality is most of us are making decisions for a lot of other humans or even pets. If millions of people find small moments to incorporate zero waste ideas into their lives it will have such a huge impact on our planet!
Here are a few ideas to try:
Use Refillable Products (Obviously our #1 hack) it’s easy and often less expensive when you buy in bulk and refill your own containers. Check out more about A Simple Planets refill program
We are a giant fan of your local Buy Nothing Project. Gift things you’re done using and receive gifts from your neighbors of things they are done with. A Simple Planet outfitted its entire office with Buy Nothing items! Desks, microwave, mini fridge, monitors, shelving, etc! Thank you neighbors!
Wash zip locks and reuse them. A little biodegradable soap and water, roll the bag between your hands, rinse and flip inside out into the drain! Its easy.
