Five Reusable Products to Reduce Waste

by Bianca Cimini

P8140769When it comes to saving the environment, every little bit counts. While it may be easy to think that whatever you are doing in your life will not affect the greater good of the whole, that couldn’t be any further from the truth. What you do to reduce waste and your carbon footprint does matter, and it can be as simple as a few changes at home. Take a look at these five small changes you can make that will have a positive impact on the environment.

 #1: Invest in a reusable water bottle. Instead of buying bottled, fill your own. There are a ton of great options online. Many people opt for the stainless steel reusable bottles.

 #2: Bring your own bags shopping. Invest in 3-5 large canvas bags to bring to the grocery store and/or farmer’s market. You’ll eliminate the need for plastic bags.

 #3: Stock up on mason jars. If you buy food in bulk (think: beans, rice, lentils, etc.) bring mason jars with you to the store and fill up that way. Again, no need for plastic and the glass mason jars are awesome in their own right. Label the tops and you are good to go.

 #4: Reusable batteries. May seem like a stretch, but with reusable batteries, you’ll save them from piling up at the landfill. There are a ton of great reusable brands on the market. You’ll save money AND eliminate waste – the best of both worlds.

 #5: Use cloth napkins. It may be an upfront cost to buy cloth napkins, but you’ll get hundreds and hundreds of uses out of them. You’ll definitely save a bit of money on buying paper napkins and save trees in the process.

 With just a couple of changes here and there, you can do your part in going green and taking a step in the right direction. How will you go green this month?
