We held a zero-waste even last week called Journey to Zero-Waste. We put up a couple rolls of paper and asked attendees to answer some questions.
What is your favourite zero-waste hack?
Bring container to restaurants
Refill at Bulk Barn or the Nickel Refillery
Bring reusable bags for shopping and reusable mug for coffee
Baby food in jars instead of plastic cups
Buy used instead of new
DIY cleaning products (laundry
Chewing on whole cloves for fresh breath
Carry cutlery in purse
What's stopping you from going Zero-Waste?
Too much packaging at the grocery store and other stores, for example crackers always have a plastic sleeve and cheese is wrapped in plastic
Lack of options
Not enough store that carry plastic-free options
Where would you like to start?
At the Nickel Refillery
Clothing manufacturers (made with natural fibres)
