Our top tips for reducing your waste...in style

1. Reduce the amount of plastic products you costume. Let’s start with the obvious…stop using plastic bags. No more excuses. Just stop. You can also start to switch out other plastics you have around the home, start with something simple like swapping your plastic toothbrush to a bamboo one.  


2. Do you drink coffee? Or tea? All of those empty, lonely, lipstick stained cups are going into landfill. It’s time that you invested in a reusable coffee cup and save the world one sip at a time. Most good cafes sell them, some even offer a discount on your coffee…that’s a double win for helping the environment and your bank account.


3. Recycle. Now you may be thinking…duh we already know this one BUT we’re not just talking about recycling your milk cartons and cereal boxes here. We’re taking it to the next level! Repurpose! How you ask? Start small…that jam jar you’re feeling great about because you just put it in the recycling bin. Take a break from patting yourself on the back. Take it out of the bin. Wash it. Repurpose and reuse it. Now you’ve got somewhere to put that open bag of nuts instead of using a plastic ziplock bag that you’re going to chuck out after one use.
