- Carry a reusable water bottle
Dehydration can cause headaches, sore muscles, and fatigue. Stay hydrated throughout your busy day and avoid being tempted to buy plastic wrapped, sugary drinks.
- Bring your own shopping bag
Buy in bulk whenever it is available. This doesn’t mean stocking up on unnecessary amounts but it allows you to bring your own containers to fill with dried goods in order to stay away from plastic containers.
Stay tuned for grocery shopping tips from a pro where I’ll share my interview with Amara Liggett and her zero-waste shopping advice!
- Pack your lunches
Plan your meals before heading to the grocery store and be realistic. Try to use the same ingredients for different lunches all week to avoid spending extra money and the risk of letting food go bad.
- Reuse spray bottles
Make sure they are cleaned and refill them with organic, homemade cleaners – I’ll be posting my zero-waste, all-purpose cleaner soon!
- Slow your roll and dine in
Life is busy, so take a break. Avoid take out containers just by sitting down for a healthy meal and use that time to plan the rest of your week or make a to-do list.
