Full disclaimer, I don’t think a zero waste lifestyle is possible.
Some things break or have a limited lifespan.
When it’s over, those items become waste.
There is no way to avoid that.
But we can certainly waste less.
That’s more than possible.
So, here are a couple habits to adopt as you wade into a low waste lifestyle.
These are based on the concepts of: refuse, reduce, reuse, repair, recycle and rot.
If you refuse things from the get go, you will have less to waste.
So, refusing should be your main priority. After that, reducing and reusing will keep your trash levels low. You should recycle and rot when there is nothing else you can do with that item.
