Simple zero waste swap Number 2: Carry your own zero waste kit with you.
I usually have mine in a little separate bag in my backpack or bag. I have a cloth napkin and handkerchief in there, a reusable straw & spork, ánd a tiny fork because I love to get French fries. 🍟The coffee cup and stirrer I only take when I plan to get coffee, because I’m not really a big coffee drinker.
I do often get some very surprised looks (and laughs) when I take my own napkin or straw out of my bag. But I don’t mind and when I explain why I do it, usually people agree that it actually makes a lot of sense.
This is just one of the many small things you can do to start reducing your waste. If everyone tries a little bit, together we can accomplish a lot! 💚

How To Reduce Waste And Save Energy, In Drawings.
Today is World Environment Day. The perfect day to share part 3 of my personal journey to a “low waste’ life. These are the changes that I have personally made. I completely understand that not every option is available to everyone. But even if you can only make a few of these changes, you can make a difference. And if everyone tries a little bit, together we can accomplish a lot! If you find these drawings useful, I have it 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.
