I think that earth is pretty important as well as human impact. I have wanted to go zero waste for the longest time, but today I have finally decided to go for it. part of going zero waste is the set up of it. this weekend I went out and purchased some different items to help me throughout my journey- however long it is.
since I am planning on going zero waste for longer, I went out and bought a few items. I do understand that some of these do have plastic packaging, which wasn’t very helpful, but I am still going to be using them.
after doing research, I noticed that not a lot of people who went plastic-free bought a hairbrush. I was originally going to pick one up from Whole Foods- but later found a larger one from Marshalls. So far, this hairbrush has done wonders. Yes, it did have plastic packaging, but all of my trash I will be keeping for an end result.
yes, I do realize that the toothbrush I chose was not bamboo- (the most common zero waste toothbrush,) and it does, in fact, have plastic. I chose this one because it had high reviews and was made with recycled yogurt containers. My family eats a heck ton of yogurt and I felt that this was important to me.
This is a regular toothpaste, but with recyclable packaging. It is also made with 100% natural ingredients.
This deodorant has been great, besides the plastic. It is made with recycled packaging as well as all natural ingredients. I think recycling is important, that is why there is some plastic.
I have been using a charcoal goat milk soap for a long time now, and it has done wonders to my skin. It has helped tremendously with my acne. The skin clarity essential oil does have a plastic top, but besides that is completely recyclable.
the hardest thing about going waste-free is the makeup selection. I do understand that all of the products I now use are not completely waste free.
thank you for reading with me today, I will be doing weekly updates on my journey.
