You guys are probably really tired of hearing me talk about Earth Day, but I can not stress the importance of it. I was recently watching a video about these two girls that decided to go zero waste for a week. It inspired me to sort of make a part two for my previous post. I promise the book content is coming back shortly after finals are over!
We can take little steps to help reduce our waste. You don’t need to live a zero waste lifestyle to make a change. I am going to list some ways you can make the change in your life.
- Reusable Water Bottle – This alone cuts back on so much plastic. So many companies make reusable water bottles. You can get a filter for your tap that filters out all the bad chemicals. I personally have a reusable Brita water pitcher and I have multiple reusable water bottles. I recommend camelbak, hydro flask, and sand cloud
- Reusable Coffee Cups – I see you guys out there getting your six dollar starbucks coffee. I am in the same boat as you. Did you know you can get your coffee in a reusable cup? I don’t know if Starbucks still does this but they will give you a small discount if you use your own cup. There’s plenty of places to buy coffee cups though I definitely recommend society six and amazon for cute ones.
- Reusable Produce Bags – Yes they actually make reusable produce bags which are a god send! You are bringing less of that cheap flimsy plastic bags home that you never use again. I can not preach it enough that these are amazing investments. I know Whole Foods currently sells some though if you are an online shopper like me I recommend flip & tumble because you get 5 decently sized bags for 12 bucks.
Okay that is all I have to share with you guys today! I provided direct links to everything I mentioned so please check them out! I really want to hear your input on all of this. I’m beyond curious! I hope you all have a good day and don’t be afraid to chat with me!
