Recycling is a hot topic these days, but as lovely as it sounds, it isn’t the answer to everything.
Even if we recycle all our plastic, glass, paper, metal and bio there will still be a lot of waste. The recycling is a business. All the trash is collected to huge cubes that are left to get bought. Most of the time the trash will end up somewhere to be recycled, but a lot of it is left to landfills. And we haven’t even started talking about the trash that isn’t recycled!
What’s the solution? What can we do to protect the mother earth from suffocating from plastic?
It’s easy, (kinda)! Start living waste free!! If we don’t use plastic there wont be trash from plastic.
Okay, okay.. I know that sound a little bit intimidating, but actually it isn’t. Of course there are those people who can fit 2 years of their trash into a mason jar, who compost and live of of solar panels. That’s an amazing goal to strive for but for most it isn’t achievable in their current living situation.
Every little thing helps. Everything from not getting the plastic straws form Starbucks, getting the celery that isn’t individually wrapper in plastic or not ordering so much on online. There are so many things to improve on and that’s the beauty of it all, no one is perfect and we all have room to learn and grow!
That’s why I made a list of five things that will help to live more waste free in our every day life.
