Today is the last official post for our trash diet (although I’m sure I’ll be posting more green living projects in the future). Our final topic on how to reduce your waste is probably the easiest to implement – reusing. There are so many areas where families can reuse and it makes so much sense to do so. It’s good for both the earth and your bank account!
Reusable bags – These days there are reusable bags on the market in every shape and size and for every purpose. For grocery shopping, I like the type that roll up into a ball and can be easily stored in a purse or diaper bag. These are especially fun because they transform into small animals, which is sure to get the little ones excited about reusing.
Along with shopping bags, small food storage bags can also be reusable. The Lunchskins brand is especially stylish. If that’s not your cup of tea, a simple Amazon search will prove that options abound. Or, even better, try making your own with this DIY.
