The term “zero waste” can be intimidating. At a time when convenience and online shopping are the norm, the thought of not producing waste and avoiding single-use plastics and paper products is overwhelming. It is easier to ignore the increasing environmental impact caused by waste management problems and the limitations of recycling.
Zero-waste living means aiming to reduce landfill-bound trash to the bare minimum—a worthy goal considering that a plastic bag could take up to 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill. When you look through your trash, you’ll probably find discards that could be recycled, reused, or repurposed. As you get excited about zero-waste living, you’ll reprioritize your shopping habits and reduce the amount of clutter and excessive packaging or goods. Whether you’re an experienced zero-waster or a beginner, there’s always something to learn or ways to improve.
