Zero Waste Alternatives!!!

Single-use Plastics.

Before I started off… with my zero-waste journey, I always used single-use products like Moisturizer, Packaged soap, Shampoo, toothpaste, plastic toothbrush, plastic comb etc. And these are the products everyone commonly use in their day-to-day life. And the reason is, these products are easily available in the markets.
But the truth is, these products after use, neither decompose nor recycled. So then, where does all these plastic go? Ultimately to the ocean beds and landfills….                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Alternative Zero Waste products.

So the first thing I did was to find the best alternatives for these single-use products and the alternatives are very natural and good for our health.                                                                     

ALTERNATIVE FOR PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSH  

I feel my decision to buy a Bamboo Toothbrush was pretty thoughtful…..
 
We change our toothbrush every 3-6 months. And have you guys ever put up your thought about, where does the entire plastic toothbrush we dispose end up???
 
Well, more than 2 billion plastic toothbrushes end up in oceans and landfills every year.

Bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable and they made to save our earth from plastics……

ALTERNATIVE FOR PLASTIC COMB

The first thing I bought was Neem wood comb instead of using plastic comb.
The best part about this combs are they are the best to reduce hair falls as it is made out of Neem Tree.
Wooden combs are the best alternative for plastics combs even in case of sustainability and it maintains an ecological balance in Nature.

ALTERNATIVE FOR PLASTIC BODY SCRUBBER

Easily available is the plastic body scrubber, which we use daily, directly on our skin.

Plastic is not edible….Aaah….. Just kidding…..

Plastic is neither good for your health nor for your skin. Its like using a foreign chemical toxic agent on your body. So start using Organic/Natural body scrubber or Vegan Bristle brush instead of Plastic body scrubber.

Alternative for Plastic bags

Use reusable cotton tote bag instead of plastic bags. Whatever small things you purchase, you get it in plastic carry bags. So the best way is to carry reusable cotton bags with you wherever you go. These reusable bags are Eco-friendly, recycled and reused. 
Even lot of shops have started use reusable cotton bags. These bags are available in markets or even online.

Alternative for Plastic Dust Pan…  

Now-a-days Plastic Dust pans are commonly seen in all of the houses. People have been used to the habit of using a one time use products and they feel its cost-effective. But this theory is completely wrong….. 
According to me the best way is to use a long-lasting, Eco-friendly and reusable products, which is highly saving your time, money and of all, your health….

AlTERNATIVE FOR PLASTIC CLOTH CLIPS

Never use plastic cloth clips, plastic sucks….
I use either steel or wooden cloth clips. Reasons are, steel can be recycled and wooden are decomposed. When we have an option of living without hurting the earth, then why we wanna live by destroying the earth??? 
The choice is ours…..whether to live by saving the place we live in or live by harming them……….gradually harming ourselves…..
So I always recommend using Eco friendly cloth clips. They are long lasting and safe for our planet and our health.
