A Giant List of Zero Waste Swaps
One of the most exciting, and perhaps overwhelming, parts of the zero waste journey is swapping your old, non-zero waste products, for sustainable alternatives. I have to admit, when I was first getting started, I was really tempted to make ALL the swaps as quickly as possible — the Instagram envy was real I wanted all the pretty market bags, the Keep Cup and to achieve a swoon worthy packageless pantry! But I didn’t.
Going zero waste does NOT mean throwing out everything you own right off the bat simply to replace with sustainable alternatives. In fact, doing so would be in complete opposition to the fundamental values encompassed by the zero waste lifestyle. What going zero waste DOES mean is using what you have first and then, and only then, consciously buying the zero waste product.
So when that time comes for you, here’s a huge list of zero waste swaps for you to make in all areas of your life.
