Zero Waste Basics
1 aluminium bottle vs plastics bottels.
Cloth bag vs plastic bag
Milk in glass versus milk in multilayer packaging
Container vs miles de platos de unicel
If you go out to eat (and unfortunately in Mexico even in some restaurants) it is very common to see the wtyrofoam plate. Carrying a container always with you or when you know you will eat out helps you avoid all that Styrofoam. Styrofoam is a material that does not biodegrade and leaches toxins into your body and the environment.
Cloth bags to buy on bulk vs plastic
Take your cloth bags and fill them in the supermarket in the bulk area. It’s a lot of fun and it’s usually cheaper than packaged goods. This is one of the basic zero waste.
Fresh and natural vs Packaged
The best for the planet is not to use straws. Let’s stop acquiring things we don’t need. I don’t use straws anymore and when I have a milkshake I use a spoon. But if you can’t live without a straw, buy one made of some material that will last a lifetime and take care of it.
Digital vs paper
Avoid unnecessary printing by making correct use of technology. Cancel the mail to receive your bank accounts, and other services that you can substitute with digital media.
Rechargable batteries vs Disposable batteries.
Swap your disposable batteries for rechargeable batteries. In fact, always try to buy durable and good quality things.
