5 Easy Ways to Save Money and Reduce Waste
Be kinder to the environment and improve your quality of life with these practical suggestions
A week ago, I chanced upon an interesting story on my Facebook feed. It was an article about Lauren Singer, a New York-based activist who writes about her trash-free and waste-free life on TrashisforTossers.com. Lauren has not thrown anything away for more than two years. She buys food in bulk and even makes her own toothpaste and lotion to cut down on packaging waste. She even has a mason jar and metal utensils in her bag so she doesn't have to use a plastic cup or a plastic spoon and fork.
Learning more about Lauren's choices made me stop and think about my own habits. I thought about how much garbage I leave behind every single day and how it affects the environment and even my own personal life.
Our garbage poses a real threat to our health, safety, and well-being. The things that we dispose of increase the risk of flooding as well as contaminate the planet that we live in.
Here are environmentally-conscious ideas to help you save more money, create an organized space, and lead a better life.
