Is it possible to reduce your trash to zero? Due to the linear economy we live in, the answer is sadly, no. However, we can drastically reduce our waste by making better, more sustainable choices, and refusing unnecessary single use waste.
We can't deny that our society is disposable. We have decided that convenience is far more important than the future of our planet. We are addicted to items that serve a purpose for mere moments and then are destined to sit in landfills forever. Trading the plastic, disposable items for reusable item is a crucial part in eliminating waste. Adding value back into the items that we use is the primary difference in disposable and non-disposable.
