I love that quote and it fits perfectly with today’s topic: Zero waste is a great thing, but it takes some effort. What about the time you’re in the city, wandering around, craving for a smoothie, or a Starbucks coffee or you don’t have time and need something to go? No problem, we’re all only human. Still, you can reduce plastic waste to its minimum, following these simple tricks below:
- bring your lunch box. Sure this would be the best solution instead of having to buy something to go. You didn’t have time to prepare something? Just bring your empty lunch box and ask wherever you go if they could fill in the salad or soup (recommend a glass jar for this one) or wraps or whatever you’re having into your lunch box.
- bring your cutlery. Again if going for something take-away, there will most certainly be plastic cutlery. So bring your own and you already saved a tiny bit of plastic.
- reusable cups. Starbucks already has that option and so do other companies, just buy one and keep it in your pocket, for whatever craving will be coming up. Also if you cannot go without a straw, check out these reusable straws. You will find those all over the internet to buy.
Tired of carrying half of your kitchen with you? Maybe you work at an office or you have a locker at school. You can always wash all the things you have at the restrooms and leave them at work, so you don’t have to take them home every time. You could even bring a little dish liquid to leave there.
