#10: It Isn’t About Buying All New Products
Sometimes, when you look online for ways to reduce waste, it seems like you always have to buy the latest products and gadgets. This can cause you to increase your waste. Thankfully, there is a better option. Instead of buying new products right away, use what you have until you can’t anymore.
Your water bottle may not be as good as a glass, recyclable water bottle, but you already have it. If you toss it to get another, then you are just adding to the waste. Instead, use what you have until it isn’t usable anymore, and when you have to buy a new one, get something better for the environment that will serve you for a long time.
