5. Carry drink containers
Re-usable water bottles and coffee mugs are indispensable in the quest to eliminate waste.
6. Eliminate paper towels
Eliminate paper towels altogether – they are one of the greatest sources of waste. Get used to cloth napkins, and seek alternatives to clean with. Cloth squares soaked in a water/vinegar solution can easily be kept moist and carried with you in a plastic container with snap lock lid.
7. Re-usable shopping bags
Most of us are getting used to the idea of bringing our own re-usable bags to the grocery store – but they are actually great for all your shopping purchases! Always have one with you.
8. Commend yourself on making a difference
By implementing these easy suggestions, you will not only be helping to reduce your personal waste but will inspire those who notice your efforts to do the same.
