Are you trying to reduce plastic waste in 2019?
I have been doing a number of small things to get waste down and reduce plastic in my life for several years, but some recent additions to my efforts are my lovely coconut dish/bottle brushes, coconut scourer, none-sponge, bamboo fibre reusable coffee cup, biodegradable poo bags (the supermarket ones always used to be ‘degradable’ but they sneakily removed that part so now they’re just normal plastic ), cotton bowl covers, sandwich and snack wraps (not new but still worth sharing), and my favourite new one: unpaper towels sourced from Etsy, they’re instead of kitchen roll and can be used for all the same stuff, including napkins. I’ve also been buying washing up liquid, shower gel and hand wash in bulk for several years. It’s much more economical doing it that way, especially when you buy the ecological stuff which tends to be more expensive. I’ve also been making my own all-purpose cleaning spray for the last 6 years, made from liquid Castile soap, water and essential oils for a natural, non-toxic much nicer smelling anti microbial cleaner.
There are so many little things we can do to start reducing our contribution to the destruction of the planet. This is just a tiny drop in the ocean for me, there is so much more to change. But we have to start somewhere and start small, we can’t change everything overnight. The husband is still of the opinion that the human race needs to be wiped out because the planet really is doomed. He won’t use my coconut washing-up stuff and never remembers to use the sandwich wraps instead of cling film 🙄 it can be an uphill struggle when you go it alone, but I’m not giving up!
Anyone else find you’re the only one in your house on this mission?
