Simple Ways To Reduce Waste, An Illustrated Guide.

Celebrate World Environment Day with these simple zero waste swaps.

Today is World Environment Day, a day for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of the environment. This hand drawn infographic shows some the ways I’ve been trying to reduce my waste, especially plastic waste.⁠💚💚💚💚

Steps towards a plastic-free life

One of the main ways I’m reducing my waste, is by buying less plastic, especially single-use plastic. These are a few steps I’m taking.

First, I use up everything I have . Once something is used up I ask myself if I really need to replace the product. If I feel I need it I look for a plastic-free alternative and make sure I recycle the old packaging. If I don’t find the product completely plastic-free (often there’s a plastic cap even on a glass jar or bottle) I go for the most sustainable option and a product made with natural ingredients.

To avoid single use plastic I make sure I always carry a reusable handkerchief, napkin, spork and straw. For grocery shopping I bring my backpack, an extra tote bag and my own little produce bags to the shop.

The illustration above shows even more things I do to reduce ways. I hope you find them useful. If you do, I have them available on a postcard on Etsy, to keep as positive inspiration. You can also follow me on Instagram for more regular updates on my low waste journey.
