Day 7 | Getting Started
When I decided that I would go waste-less for one month, I started to prepare. It sounds ridiculous, but there were certain things I felt that I needed in order to start this lifestyle on the right foot . Here is a list of everything I bought before the month started:
A | Make-up The foundation that I use comes in a tiny glass container that I reuse to store my spices from the farmers market.
B | Bulk Food Non-packaged foods! Yeahhh
C | Matches Wooden matches are compostable. Lighters aren't.
D | Cork Screw Because.... I mean, do I even need to explain?
E | Water Bottle Water bottles are great for so many reasons. Let's just set aside environmental reasons for this one and think about how much money I'm saving.
F | Tea Ball I. love. tea. I buy loose leaf tea and stick it in this stainless stain, mesh ball thingy. Then I just wash said ball thingy and put the used leaves in the compost. BAM.
G | Glass Containers I used mason jars and other class containers instead of plastic tupperware to store all of food.
H | Stainless Steel Straw Self explanatory and just plain awesome.
I | Wooden Scrubber Instead of nasty sponges.
J | *
K | Larger Mason Jars This is a little repetitive, but I like to have a variety of sizes. Perfect size for leftovers.
L | Fabric I bought fabric so that I could make my own grocery bags!
