Hey y’all! For those of you who live in the tri-state area, particularly in NYC, you may have heard that a zero waste shop opened up in Williamsburg. Founders Lauren Singer of Trash is for Tossers and Daniel Silverstein of zero waste daniel are making it easier for curious consumers like us to live a more sustainable, less wasteful life.
As you may have known from my previous post on my public health blog, I’m really fascinated and on board with the zero waste movement, and I follow quite a few bloggers and vloggers talk about their tips and journeys toward a zero waste life.
So going to the store was everything I had hoped it would be. Nothing was out of place. The walls were decorated with decals that resembled rooms of a home, and each table was immaculate with themed zero waste products.
I’ll be honest with you, the price isn’t the cheapest, but I would argue that it’s an investment towards reducing your environmental footprint and just treating the planet a little bit better by producing less waste (in the form of saying no to plastic and one-time use items, and recycling/reusing/composting items that you can).
I got myself a airtight stainless steel container, a cloth grocery bag for any fine items I may purchase in the future, tea tree and charcoal bar soap, and a little cloth napkin that’s probably softer than a baby’s bottom hah! The best part about my shopping haul was that I didn’t produce ANY trash, and I was able to just recycle the stainless steel container for them to reuse again 🙂
What zero waste products do you own at home? What do you do to live a more sustainable life?
