Creating a zero waste kit is one of the easiest ways to start reducing plastic waste when you’re on-the-go and often, you can started with items you already have in your own house. To create yours, think about your daily routine: Do you stop for coffee? Are you always buying bottled water? Do you like using a straw? Do you eat out for lunch? Make a list of what items you’ll need on a daily basis, gather them from around your house and/or purchase items you don’t have, and most importantly take it with you when you leave the house! Below are some of the items I bring with me on a daily basis:
