How To Live A Zero-Waste Life

Reducing our impact on the environment has become more important than ever before and there has never been a better time to make a change that can truly help to create a more sustainable future for the planet.

Living a zero-waste life is a great way to take that first step, and this doesn’t have to happen overnight. Instead, it can involve making small changes to your everyday routine. With that in mind, we’ve put together some tips on how to create your zero-waste lifestyle!

Zero-Waste Tip 1: Replace plastic with biodegradable packaging 

Reducing plastic waste is an easy step to take and could be as simple as swapping out plastic bags for recyclable materials like cotton or nylon. Next time you’re out shopping in a supermarket, ask the staff what kind of recyclable bags they have and carry your food home in an eco-friendly bag.

Be sure to check out our full plastic free collection to see what kind of alternatives we offer.

Zero-Waste Tip 2: Limit food waste

There are so many creative ways to minimise food waste and protect the environment. Save leftovers and store them in a clear glass mason jar so you can see them every time you open the fridge. Learn how to preserve food and experiment with fermentation and pickling.

Chop up vegetable stems, stick them in a blender and make a smoothie. Invest in an outdoor composter and turn scraps into energy for plants. Turn excess food into a stock and spice up a new meal. The possibilities are endless!

Zero-Waste Tip 3: Use sustainable cleaning products

Another way to live your best zero-waste life is to use cleaning products that are sympathetic to the environment. It won’t come as any surprise that many cleaning items contain harmful pathogens like ammonia that contribute to nitrogen pollution.

It’s far better to use natural cleaning supplies that contain ingredients such as baking powder and vinegar. EcoVibe stocks a variety of natural cleaning products, which you can check out here.

Zero-Waste Tip 4: Drink from a reusable water bottle

Did you know that 1 million plastic water bottles are sold every minute?  But only a fraction of these bottles are recycled and it’s so important that we embrace reusability for a brighter tomorrow.  

Reusable water bottles can make a huge difference. Plus, they come in a wide range of colours and shapes for added visual appeal.

Zero-Waste Tip 5: Natural cosmetics are the future of beauty 

Want to look stunning and feel good about doing your part for the environment? Consider buying natural cosmetics that don’t contain damaging ingredients such as polyethylene or talc.

From vegan beauty products to organic gels, we’ve got plenty of natural items that can help you in your zero-waste journey.

Closing thoughts

It’s worth remembering that living a zero-waste life doesn’t mean you have to give up the luxuries you’ve become used to. But it can help you become more conscious of your shopping choices and lead to positive change for the planet.
