I have been taking part in Zero Waste Week for 4 years now and have been slowly working towards reducing my waste. I am no where near Zero Waste but I am definitely better than I was.
So what tips can I offer for anyone thinking of trying to reduce their waste?
- Don’t try to do it all at once – it can be very overwhelming at first so break it down into more manageable chunks
- Do a waste audit. How much waste do you throw out on a daily basis and where does it come from. This will help you identify the areas you can work on. Which brings me to….
- Pick an area to start – maybe you want to tackle food waste first, or your kids’ lunchboxes?
- Don’t be too hard on yourself – No one is perfect, we all slip up.
Are there any other tips you think I should include? Please let me know in the comments below.
Good luck with your Zero Waste journey.
