In this 5 minute article the Jungle Culture team is going to share 5 quick tips on how to become zerowaste, how to lower your waste and how to use less plastic!
Our articles are always bitesized and easy to digest. So without further adieu…
Tip 1 – Buy a Backpack:
Splurge on a good backpack and take it everywhere!
Each member of our team has a really nice, long-lasting backpack. It may sound like this has nothing to do with being zerowaste. But in fact, just getting into the habit of taking a backpack with you will help you to lower your waste.
There are so many times when we just need to grab a few things from the store and simply need a plastic bag to carry those items home. With a backpack, problem solved.
Tip 2 – Build a Zerowaste Kit:
Every member of our team has a zerowaste kit. Just a small box with handy bits and pieces that you can carry with you when you’re out and about.
Just 6 items cut out 95% of my daily waste. It is so easy to build a kit like this and keep it in one compartment of your new backpack, so why not try it?
Tip 3 – Shaving the World, One Blade at a Time:
Switching to a bamboo safety razor is one of the best things I have ever done. Not only do safety razors cost less and create less waste. They are also just better. Our unisex safety razor really does cut the cost of self care and helps to shave you some money… Okay, I will stop!
100 safety razor blades can last 1,600 times and they cost £8. The razor base is just £16.99.
Tip 4 – Don’t Make Being Eco-Friendly a Chore:
Lowering your waste can be difficult, but it shouldn’t be a chore.
That’s why we design our products to be stylish, but affordable. By doing this you can enjoy using sustainable items without paying too much for them. Look for other brands with the same ethos and if you aren’t sure which brands have the best products, send us a message or comment below asking for advice and we are happy to recommend competitors who place quality over profits!
You could try an eco-friendly products delivery service like one of our partners, Sustainer Container.
Tip 5 – Switch to an Eco-Friendly Energy Supplier:
The Jungle Culture team all use "Bulb Energy" who are a fantastic supplier of renewable energy!
Switching to sustainable electricity is easy and although it may be a little bit more expensive, prices will eventually come down as more people make the switch.
I hope these tips have helped you to lower your waste and become more sustainable. If you need any advice or help to become more zerowaste, comment below or send us an email. We have a friendly team of experts waiting to help!
