a few tips for creating less waste

Do laundry once a week. We tend to over wash our clothes. Just because you wore a t-shirt once doesn't mean it needs to be wash. Actually the opposite.

Avoid buying clothing that needs to be dry cleaned. It's a hassle anyways.

Try shopping second-hand for things you need. Clothing, shoes, kitchen appliances, furniture, etc. 

Get glass bulk jars. Use leftover glass jars or buy big glass jars or save glass jars from previous purchases to fill with any bulk items. I have an assortment of sizes for everything from pasta down to tiny jars for spices.


Avoid pre-packaged food. Buy fresh ingredients that don't need packaging. Visit your local farmers market. Find the nearest bulk food store.
