Another step in going Zero Waste is a really great free one. The next time you’re out shopping, there are a few simple questions you can ask yourself before making a purchase:
- Do I really need it?
- Is it really necessary?
- Can I make do with something I already have?
- Do I need it or just want it?

Being conscious of what you are purchasing and where you are purchasing it from can also help you on your journey of Going Zero Waste.
Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Compost!
Make a To Go Bag that you can take with you when you leave the house, you can include a reusable cup for your morning drink (or make your morning drink at home and take it with you) handkerchiefs can replace tissues, bring your own produce bags, take along reusable straws, there are plenty of Zero Waste options.
On a special note, we understand that during these times of COVID-19 some of these suggestions may not be an option, but do keep them in mind for the future.
Reuse as much as possible when you can, breathe new life into the old with a makeover or some fabric. Everyone loves a good DIY which we will also be covering in future blog posts. There will be lots of fun projects that you can try out at home.
Recycle whenever possible, this is an old tip and a good one. It keeps waste out of our landfills and uses raw materials to create new materials.
Composting is a fantastic way to reduce waste and help you on your way to a Zero Waste Lifestyle.
If you don’t have a compost bin or a garden, now is the time to start! Compost bins can be made very easily and can be made from materials that you probably have laying around the house. The nutrients from your own DIY Compost are better and healthier then the compost | growing agent that can be purchased from big chain stores.
If you live in an apartment, try composting and container gardening. It’s the perfect way to make use of your balcony (if you have one) or add greenery to your home if you do not have a balcony and it’s also such a rewarding feeling to grow your own food.
