What you can do to make a change
At What About Waste, we attempt to reduce our personal waste as much as possible and also to positively influence you with environmentally friendly alternatives. We strongly believe that using less plastic is solely a matter of changing our habits on a daily basis.
Reducing your plastic waste is not a matter of buying more in order to refurnish your entire kitchen or bathroom, it simply requires a bit of creativity; changing old bedsheets into cloths, or reusing your mayonnaise jar for your handmade body lotion.
To help you reduce your personal trash, we made a selection of our favourite tricks, brands, and no-waste essentials for you.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
