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.

An attention-grabbing discussion is value comment. I think that it's best to write extra on this matter, it won't be a taboo subject but usually persons are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

The following time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can repair in case you werent too busy searching for attention.

Nice post. I learn one thing tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to read content from other writers and apply slightly something from their store. I�d desire to use some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don�t mind. Natually I�ll give you a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

I wish to show some thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this matter. As a result of scouting through the online world and coming across solutions which are not powerful, I believed my life was over. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you have sorted out all through your entire post is a critical case, and those which could have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn't discovered your web site. Your good talents and kindness in playing with all the stuff was helpful. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a stuff like this. I can also at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for the reliable and result oriented guide. I will not think twice to refer your site to any person who requires tips about this matter.

My spouse and i were now lucky when Michael could round up his survey from your ideas he obtained while using the site. It's not at all simplistic just to find yourself releasing things that a number of people may have been trying to sell. So we know we need the writer to appreciate because of that. The entire explanations you made, the simple site menu, the friendships you help to engender - it is all astonishing, and it's making our son in addition to us understand the subject matter is excellent, which is incredibly pressing. Many thanks for all!
