Creating a zero waste kit is one of the easiest ways to start reducing single-use waste when you’re on-the-go. Often, you can started with items you already have in your own house, but just like a new workout outfit can inspire us to invest in our health, sometimes a new reusable can kick-start a new zero waste habit.


How to create your zero waste on-the-go kit?

To create your zero waste kit, it's important to think about your daily routine. Here are a few questions you might ask yourself as you run through your day:

  • Will I stop for coffee or tea?
  • How do I plan to stay hydrated? 
  • Do I like using a straw?
  • Will I eat out for lunch or make my own?
  • Will I have leftovers if I'm eating out?
  • Will I be coming home to re-prep for any evening plans or do I need to prepare now?
Once you've answered these questions, make a list of what items you’ll need on a daily basis. You can then gather each reusable item from around your house or make a plan to purchase items you don’t have.
