Use a reusable bottle

This is an obvious one, but get a water bottle that you just take with you everywhere. Not only will you avoid single-use containers, but you won’t spend as much money on beverages at stores and vending machines if you have your own. It’s true that most cans and bottles can be recycled, but that requires energy. And it takes energy to make the thing to begin with, and ship it around too!

    Bring a cloth reusable bag for EVERY place you shop. I was recently in Newfoundland Labrador and you won’t find a store that has any plastic bags! And they even have wooden disposable utensils. So, if someone can draft a law that gets rid of plastic in its entirety.

    reusable coffee filters and pods
    reusable snack size containers and then buy in bulk and pack your own

    use glass jars at home to store food in, better for the environment and your health

    concentrated and solid soaps and lotions

    wash the zip locking bags that you use and make them reusable. I turn them inside out to wash. I have not experimented with the dishwasher yet.

    Yes. This! Been washing out zip lock bags for reuse ( rarely use them) but not ones with grease.
