Smarter Shopping

March 24, 2022

You want to make changes and live a more sustainable life—we can relate. Yet when you consider something like living a zero-waste lifestyle, it can seem inaccessible. Perhaps you have a limited budget, or limited shopping options, or limited time—again we can relate!  But consider making progress rather than achieving perfection; that is the take in this article from Treehugger.

You can make progress—and create less waste—by simply working with what you have.  Making smarter shopping choices like buying in bulk (less packaging) or taking advantage of sales (when more sustainable but pricier options are in your budget) are some of the tips offered. The most vital advice given is to find the habits that work for you, the ones you like to do.  That way the changes you make will stick so that your progress is ever more sustainable.
