Going Zero Waste: Zero to Sixty??

Posted on February 6, 2019 at 12:05 AM

Recycle, Reuse, Reduce. When it come to your recycling and reusing needs you have us, Little Miss Recycle, but what about reducing? Some people’s solution is to go Zero waste!


It may sound intimidating; zero waste means to reduce the amount of your waste that goes into landfills by 90%. Or, possibly it seems attainable do you know how much waste you create daily.


Little Miss Recycle sat down with a local Austin woman, who is taking steps to get to zero waste. She gave us some great tips that everyone could implement easily that will help to reduce our waste!


There are probably a few ways you know about already, getting reusable metal/glass water bottle and taking a reusable tote for grocery shopping. Kristi enlightened us to other small reusable items we can add to our everyday.


As we sat for coffee Kristi had her own coffee tumbler with her. She told us about the power in refusing straws! Have you thought about that? All the plastic saved by just refusing straws at eateries. In her purse she had a cute little cloth case. It housed a reusable straw, and cutlery for anytime she dines out.


Around the house she has made mores small changes over time:

Instead of


Plastic cling wrap for food storage / Biodegradable alternative in bees wax wrap.



Single use plastic zip lock bags/ Re-zip bags, small zip pouches made for long term use.



Paper towels / Cloth towels.


Body wash and gels in plastic bottles / Natural Bar Soaps


Plastic Disposable Razor / Stainless Steel Safety Razor


Tampons / Reusable Menstrual Cups



Going zero waste takes time! We have slowly been conditioned to our current way of life, we are used to single use and disposable everything. So, changing overnight is not advised!

First things first, would be to educate yourself, there are many easy alternatives to our environmentally toxic way of life. We may just not know about them yet. Learn if there are options that you and your family could try. Then little by little try them out and see what sticks.

If you need help then follow Kristi @msatx.livesgreen on Instagram for even more waste reducing ideas and motivation.

The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my option to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could repair in case you werent too busy looking for attention.
