First steps for a environmentally friendly life is waste reduction. The biggest part of household waste is made out of recyclable materials or, worse, of things that are not recyclable and are bad for the environment.

Those who want to be more careful about their impact on the environment can some type of efforts, even starting with their homes.

  1. Reduce use of plastic by choosing re-usable cloth bags.
  2. Switch containers around the house to make sure all of them are re-usable. You can even go a step further and buy glass containers instead of plastic ones. If you do choose those out of plastic, make sure they’re used over and over again.
  3. Avoid individual wrappers that cannot be recycled. There are more efficient ways of wrapping food that you can find in the markets.
