It may seem counterintuitive to be recommending items to help move towards zero waste living but it does make sense, I promise! Today I wanted to talk about the top 7 items I’ve added to my life over the last few years that have meant I now create less waste on a day-to-day basis. All of them are quite simple (and generally cheap) but having them in your home (and using them of course!) will make a big difference to the planet.
I’m a big fan of taking my lunch to work and bring food from home almost every day. Not only does it save me a ridiculous amount of money (seriously, $11 for a crappy sandwich? No thanks!) but it guarantees I will have something delicious and hearty ready to eat when lunchtime rolls around. The only tricky part is that I walk to work, so whatever I am bringing needs to be in a sturdy, well sealed container to make sure there’s no unfortunate spillages along the way!
