10 Simple Switch Ups on your Journey to Zero Waste

Last week I talked about making Straight Swaps to more eco versions of your regular products, that require no change to our routine or our convenience (6 Straight Swaps on your Journey to Zero Waste). This week I want to talk about making 10 Simple Switch Ups on your Journey to Zero Waste. As you may remember, I have identified three 'levels' of change on a zero waste journey: Straight Swap - A change that really requires no change to our routine or our convenience.

6 Straight Swaps on your Journey to Zero Waste

No sustainable change can be made instantly and wholly. It is a process that takes time and effort. This is something we need to remember on our own journeys to zero waste. We need to take one change at a time and make it a habit. Then we move on to the next. As I wrote in my blog, The Easiest Way You Can Start Your Eco Journey To Zero Waste, don't be Sisyphus.

Despite the protests of love by the kids, there is no long-term use for or use of this plastic. It's literally production of waste.
