A zerowaste lifestyle is one way to live more ethically. Let’s say, you have decided to stay away from Fast fashion or buy less. Let’s take it a step further, you decided to go vegan. I’m not saying that you have to be plant-based and buy sweat-shop free clothing to be a better person. But let’s say you decided to reduce your carbon footprint by reducing your use of plastic, Or you just want to give it a try!
Besides being kind to our environment, besides zerowaste being exciting, maybe you are looking for some reason to stick with it or give it a try. I wanted to share with you 5 benefits amongst so many others you get from reducing your waste!
I just started my journey to become a more mindful consumer and reduce my negative impact on the environment. So far, I can say I love this lifestyle!
You save more money
A zerowaste lifestyle saves you money. That’s simple. If you want to reduce your waste then you need to consume less. I’m not saying that you have to go on an extreme purge if it’s not necessary.
Just evaluate what you already have, think before buying is a huge step toward savings!
Learn to reuse your old stuff, learn how to repurpose. For example, I use my old raggy T-shirts that are not good enough for donation as cleaning rags or dishcloths. They make great handtowels and turbans.
A zerowaste lifestyle will spark some creativity in you. How?
Suddenly you find a million way to use something that you would normally get rid of.
Let’s take an example: those leftover vegetables past their prime in the fridge, now have potential! You can use them in vegetable stock, smoothies, compost, etc…
