Are you ready to join our zero waste journey? Let's set a goal each month to help encourage zero waste practices!
This month, our goal is to buy nothing "new".
45 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions comes solely from the production of the things we use and buy every day. Shopping secondhand is an easy way to start making small changes in your daily life that will make a big difference!
you can easily make your own household cleaners by using combinations of a few simple ingredients. You probably already have most of them in your home.
Here are some very common household items that can be used for cleaning:
Baking soda Lemon Borax Soap—Unscented liquid soap without petroleum distillates cleans almost everything
Cornstarch—Shampoos carpets and rugs
Vinegar—Cuts grease, cleans mildew
Essential oils of tea tree, Thieves, lemon and lavender—Tea tree and Thieves oil is a natural antiseptic, antifungal and disinfectant. Lavender and lemon are gentle antiseptics and antibacterials. • • • • • #zerowastecleaning #zerowastecleaningproducts #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #chemicalfreecleaning #chemicalfreeliving #chemicalfreecleaning...
