My top 10 tips to reduce your waste

Sometimes when we want to reduce our waste, it can be really overwhelming at first. I wish there was a cookie-cutter plan that I could give you all that is fail-proof.

Reducing waste is also about changing our habits and this is something that might take some time, be patient with yourself and your environment. Take it one step at a time and one habit at a time and remember there is no “perfect” choice, only a better choice for the environment.
