5 tips for making less rubbish
A few tips from sustaindaily.dk for you who want to start reducing waste in your everyday life - whether you plan to end up as a thoroughbred zero waster or just think you go down with the trash a little too often.
Give experiences instead of things
You can eventually buy many gift cards for experiences and restaurant visits, but you can also make them yourself, eg lunch for a friend or theater trip for grandma
Clean with vinegar and baking soda
which handles the vast majority of cleaning jobs. That way, the shelf with cleaning products will be smaller, and the amount of chemistry in your home as well. A mixture of vinegar and water 1: 1 can be used as a universal cleaner.
Replace the paper towel with cloth napkins
which are good for both the environment and the eye! You can sew or cut napkins from eg old tablecloths or sheets. After use, they can be washed again and again.
The rye bread food can come in a lunch box, the salad in an old jam jar, and the fruit in a cloth bag. The food package is a good place to start if you want to reduce your waste, and then you also avoid unnecessary chemistry in brought food.
Did you know that most gift wrap can not be recycled to make new paper at all? Instead, wrap your gifts in boxes with a ribbon, cloth bag or scarf that you can give away as part of the gift or take home with you.
