Waste pollutes our environment and producing less of it is a great resolution for the new year. With these tips you will have less to throw away in future and, at the same time, do something good for our planet (and your wallet).
Bye bye plastic bags
In many supermarkets there are no more free plastic bags at the cash desk available. You can also save money in the fruit and vegetable department. Buy a few reusable fabric bags or weigh larger products loose.
Mug to go
Drinking your coffee on the go saves time, but paper cups and plastic lids cause a lot of waste. A returnable cup solves the problem and in many coffee shops the coffee in the cup you bring along is even a little cheaper.
In many areas the tap water is drinkable without hesitation. With a water bottle made of metal or glass, you can always benefit from clean and cheap water when you are on the move.
Be your own cook
Processed food and ready meals are often packed in several layers. If you cook yourself, less waste is produced and you know exactly what you eat.
Dry foods such as beans, rice, pasta and sugar have a long shelf life and can therefore be bought in large quantities. This tip also saves money in addition to packaging material.
