034: Top Tip Thursday, Crazy Bird Questions


Today we are going to have a look at some of the questions that I have received in the last few weeks from you crazy birds. I am by no means perfect or completely zero waste, but I try my best to create as little waste as possible. If there are any of the methods that I currently use and you know of something more sustainable or easier, please feel free to share it with me, and I would love to update the crazy birds.

Episode Highlights

01:18 How do I manage only to have 1-litre bin of waste every 6-8 weeks?

02:58 We live in an apartment and composting can be hard at times not to talk about the smelliness if you had to do it indoors, therefore I invested in a Smart Cara and had to say she has been a valuable assist in our kitchen.

04:35 What is your take on clothing or products made from recycled plastic?

05:19 Everytime that you place the item for example in the washing machine it will release microplastics, those microplastics will then go in your drain and then in the water supply.

08:03 What would you tell people while shopping package free in a store that is not package free?

Key Take Away

“Every time that you place the item for example in the washing machine it will release microplastics, those microplastics will then go in your drain and then in the water supply.”

Microplastics are a hot topic at the moment and with the number of companies entering the sustainable market on the rise and with that comes a lot of greenwashing. Companies telling you that their products are good for the environment and the moment you dig a little deeper you find that they are no different other than promoting more people to use it. This can often lead to confusion and also frustration as you might be purchasing products that you were told are good for the environment but then in fact was not. Therefore do take everything that the salesperson tells you with a pinch of salt. Go and do your own research and find out more about the items before investing in the product.
