3 Zero Waste Swaps that are Easy to do
1. Reusable Water Bottle
Carrying a reusable water bottle wherever you go is one of the simplest ways to start your zero waste journey. Billions of single-use plastic bottles are produced every year and only a small percentage of them are recycled. By using reusable bottles, we can help reduce the environmental damage caused by plastic, and they're safer to use because they do not contain any toxins which could potentially leech into the water as they degrade over time.

2. Reusable Straws
Reusable straws help the environment because they help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans and landfills. Single-use plastic straws are a major source of pollution, taking hundreds of years to decompose, and often ending up in our waterways. Choosing reusable straws require less energy to manufacture than disposables because they don’t need to go through a manufacturing process each time they’re used, thus saving energy and reducing pollution.
3. Reusable Kitchen Towels
Reusable towels last much longer than disposable ones since they can be reused up to 100 times, reducing the amount of waste going into the environment. Additionally, many reusable towels are made with natural materials such as cotton and hemp can be composted once they have reached the end of their life, thus creating no waste.
