5 easy ways to reduce waste

ABC's War on Waste has been amazing for showing us all just how much damage disposable items like coffee cups are causing our environment. The good news is, there's never been a better time to find stylish plastic-free or low-tox reusable products, to replace single use plastic.

We've put together this guide to show you 5 easy products you can switch to, which will make your life easier and lift the burden of guilt from your shoulders.

Here are our 5 easy product switches to reduce waste

Fressko reusable coffee cup to reduce waste

1. Reusable coffee cup

We stock both Frank Green and Fressko reusable cups, so we can all cut down on the millions of takeaway cups that go to landfill each year - and that's just in Australia.

2. Reusable water bottle 

Frank Green both make stylish, practical and affordable water bottles, which mean you can have your H2O on hand at all times to avoid the need to buy a throw-away plastic bottle.

Reusable straws to reduce waste

3. Reusable straws

Plastic straws end up in the ocean and harm our marine friends - which is something we all want to avoid! We stock metal straws, bamboo and silicone straws from Ever Eco to ensure we can all avoid using plastic straws - best of all, they also offer 'on-the-go' packs, with a pouch to store your straws in your bag.

Ever Eco food pouches

4. Reusable zip-lock bag replacement

We love Ever Eco Reusable Food Pouches at Natural Supply Co - they are the perfect size for a sandwich, cut up veggies or nuts to carry as an on-the-go snack, or to store your little ones' medical pack in your nappy bag. We've stopped using SO many throw-away ziplock bags as a result - which feels really good.

Mesh Produce Pouches by Ever Eco

5. Reusable produce bags

These lightweight mesh bags from Ever Eco are fab. Keep the in your reusable shopping bags in your car, so you have them ready for your shop at all times; then just pop your fruit and veg straight into them while you shop. You can then transfer them straight to the fridge, and best of all? They help your produce to stay fresh for longer - so you'll save money as well.

Looking to make more changes? We also stock a range of zero waste products to help you on your journey.
