Becoming a Zero-Waste Household

I’ve always been interested in recycling and have recently shifted towards a less environmentally damaging way of living. These are the ways I previously lived and have continued to live:

  • I’m vegetarian and have been now for nearly 15 years.
  • I get public transport, walk, cycle, or use an electric car to travel within the UK.
  • I grow my own food on my allotment.
  • I use energy saving lightbulbs and bulk-cook meals.
  • I recycle my empty containers and compost my food waste.

What now?

Earlier this year, I switched all my bath products to Lush’s naked (without packaging) range and have enjoyed face washes, soaps, shower scrubs and even deodorant in bar form, rather than in plastic containers.

But lately, I have been seeing that, even so, I am still generating a LOT of recycling with regards to supermarket shopping. So, I decided to set myself a challenge of converting to shopping for food in a zero waste supermarket, when possible, such as my local farmer’s market or The Refill Room.

What are you doing to help the environment? I’d love to hear from you!
