The following four products were easy to start using on my Zero Waste journey. When I say easy I mean it, these were simple swap outs of existing products and I either didn’t need to change my behavior or only made slight modifications. All four are now staples for me and my family.
- Bamboo Toothbrush – Most toothbrushes are made of plastic. Not only is this brush compostable, but the packaging it comes in is too.
- Wool Dryer Balls – We use this instead of dryer sheets, they cut down on waste and dryer time. You can make your own using wool yarn or purchase ones already made.
- Reusable snack and sandwich bags for school lunches – why throw away plastic when you don’t have to, plus my son thinks they are super cool.
- Mesh Bags for buying fruits and veggies – great for the grocery store and farmers market to cut down on plastic.
Hope you find these products of interest and start joining me along this life changing journey. I am planning a future post around more advanced products that I use and some other products that just haven’t stuck for me yet.
