1. Bring Your Own Shopping Bags 

It comes as no shock that we all have a few shopping bags lying around the house. So instead of paying for a bag at checkout, why not save some money (and cut out on the waste) by bringing your own? Efficient, and cost-effective. Plus, who doesn’t love a good saving opportunity?

2. Reuse Old Clothes For Cleaning

We all have a lot of old clothes lying around like t-shirts, sweatpants, jackets, and whatnot. Instead of throwing them away, why not reuse the fabric and turn them into cleaning cloths? This simple and effective solution also saves money without having to buy cleaning supplies.

3. Shop Groceries in Season 

Buying fruits and vegetables that are in season not only contributes to lower carbon emissions since they don’t have to be imported in from other countries, but they taste so much better! Tastier fruits and vegetables equal tastier food, and a lower carbon footprint, which is a win-win for everyone!

4. Swap Out Plastic for Beeswax Wrap 

You are really hungry and have just made a large bowl of p,  but halfway through you realize you won’t be able to finish your bowl and now you have leftovers. Instead of covering your leftovers with plastic wrap, switch to beeswax wrap for an alternative solution. Beeswax is a great reusable solution to plastic wrap and aluminium foil since you can wash them after each use. Plus, they come in cute designs you can pick and choose from!

5. Say NO To Fast Fashion

Fast fashion brands like Zara, H&M, and so constantly have new style and items for each season. Ever wondered how they produce their clothes so fast? Underpaid workers, unethical practices and wasteful sourcing gives them the edge. There are so many local ethical brands with albeit slightly higher prices that don’t compromise on quality for a larger selection. This way, you can buy only what you need and support your local community at the same time!
