3 Tips for Going Zero Waste

Updated: May 20, 2020

Huge thank you to Ecolovejoy for sponsoring this blog post! All opinions stated on my blog are 100% my own.


One of my 2020 goals was to reduce our plastic consumption and make more eco-friendly swaps in our home. I've been learning more about what it means to go zero waste (low waste or sustainable living is probably more of an accurate reflection of real life) from several lovely Instagram accounts that I totally recommend following:

Here's my 3 tips for going zero waste {beginners edition}:


1. Ditch the plastic grocery bags.


For my 25th birthday I received the sweetest gift from ECOLOVEJOY, a reusable grocery bag!





I'm obsessed with how perfectly large the tote is (and the incredibly large, deep pockets). Many grocery stores cannot allow reusable grocery bags right now due to covid-19 precautions, but you can still use those reusable bags! Simply pack your reusable bags in your car and put the purchased items in the bags in the parking lot.





2. Try bamboo products!




Swap your plastic toothbrush for a compostable bamboo toothbrush. Amazon has a 6 pack of bamboo toothbrushes that is great to get started (I personally like to have extra toothbrushes in our house just in case).


Swap your plastic scrub brush for bamboo.

3. Upcycle as much as possible!





Before you buy new, look around. What you already have sitting in your house might be able to be repurposed or upcycled. One of my favorite oily tips is to use Lemon Essential Oil to remove labels and sticky substances from upcycled glass jars.
