Easy Low Waste Lifestyle Changes

An easy way to start a lower-waste lifestyle is to incorporate lower-waste products into your everyday routines. Small changes in the way we consume products add up to a big personal impact.

Look for items with less plastic packaging for necessities like dish soap, air fresheners,  toothpaste, shampoo, and conditioner.

Adapt What You Have Already

You don’t have to dump your Keurig to live more sustainably. There are tons of options for reusable kcup filters.

Same with pour-over coffee. There are several options at any price point. My first was this simple one that requires a paper filter.
