6 Simple Ways to produce less waste

The zero waste and sustainability movement is growing. And thats great because we only have one planet to live on and we need to do everything possible to protect it. 

But, you may want to produce less waste but you’re just not sure about how to start. Well, here are 6 simple ways to help you produce less waste and protect the planet. 

Think about how you buy your products. 

Think about the packaging your products come in. For example, our colloidal silver is sold in glass bottles meaning it’s easier to recycle and reuse. 

Think about your morning cuppa!

Did you know that most tea bags contain plastic? This can mean that it’s not good for composting as the plastic doesn’t degrade. So think about your morning cuppa and switch to loose tea – it also tastes loads better too. 

Swap your beauty products

Forget sheet masks and instead practice self care with homemade skin care. You can use items from your fridge or garden to create a whole range of beauty products. Try our favourite all natural face mask.

Hydrate and Nourish

  • What You Need:
  • – 1/2 Avocado.
  • – 1 tablespoon of honey.
  • – A handful of oats or oat bran.

Mix all the ingredients together and massage in to your skin. Simply rinse off after 5-10 minutes. 

Know what’s in your fridge/cupboards

Food waste is at an all time high. But the best way to combat that particular problem in your own home is to know what you have in and to make a weekly menu plan. It’s so much easier (and cheaper) than popping to the supermarket daily and it’ll ensure you use all the ingredients you have in your home. 

Switch your toothbrush to a bamboo one

Can you imagine just how many toothbrushes you go through in your lifetime? Now, think about all that plastic just sitting around the landfill. Make a switch to bamboo. Bamboo toothbrushes can be composted, so make a great alternative to plastic ones.

Think about the gifts you give

Gifting food or experiences is a great way to turn gift giving in to a sustainable activity. The majority of people don’t need any more stuff so give them something they can use or enjoy.
