Matching jars, tons of time or even the proximity of a bulk shop are not prerequisites for ‘zero-waste’ living. It is always worth remembering that the essence of ‘zero-waste’ living lies in consuming less in the first place, making use of what you already have and reducing avoidable waste; practices that both the planet and your bank account will thank you for.
With a little thought and planning we can all adopt some sustainable ways, even if we don’t have access to package-free nuts, veggies and cleaning products on a regular basis or don’t feel like developing our DIY skills. Listed here are just a few of the things I try to do.
All efforts to protect this precious planet are valuable and worth making, no matter how small or simple they might be. ‘Zero-waste’ living can be for everyone –just define your approach to it and start the journey. Whether you decide to take baby steps or giant leaps is up to you. You don’t have to get pretty jars in the perfect row in order to make a positive difference and to embrace the ‘zero-waste’ ways – the most important thing is to start somewhere and keep going. Progress, not perfection.
To quote Mark Twain, continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection.
