  • Aim to avoid plastic when purchasing groceries (Grocery Shopping 101)
  • Shop used rather than new when possible
  • Control the urge to shop for items you don’t need and make use of what you do have

The list can go on and on but have it connect to your main goal. Are you looking to reduce your plastic use? Try one or two plastic related tips, to change habits for the year. Try to keep your goals small, if you over-extend yourself you are likely to burn out and create more waste as a result. A less waste life doesn’t happen overnight so take it slow, there is always time to add to your goals once you have mastered a few.
