Here’s a huge list of section by section zero waste swaps for you to begin making some swaps in all areas of your life.

That being said, a huge caveat: going zero waste does not mean throwing everything you own away and buying sustainable alternatives. There is nothing further from zero waste than throwing away a perfectly functional item just because it doesn’t suit your current lifestyle.

So go through and mark down some of these low waste swaps you’d like to try once your current products run out. Only then should you carefully, consciously buy products that will actually serve a purpose. (And buy second hand wherever possible.)
