To accompany this post, I will show you my "Green" inspired outfit!
So, here are my 5 ways:
- The Bigger the Better - Buy bigger bottles of products like shampoo, hand soap, hand sanitizer and the like. Bigger bottles means it will take more time for you to finish it up. This means that you only need to buy one big bottle as opposed to a lot of little bottles which means that less plastic (or whatever material is used for the packaging) is used.
- Buy Vintage - Buying clothes or accessories from thrift stores would mean that there is one less piece of clothing that the manufacturers need to make which means that lesser resources are used up. It's like recycling except it's with clothes.
- Multi-Purpose Clothing - Don't throw any of your old clothes away. If something is too small for you, save the fabric! You can turn it into a pouch or a wallet or a cellphone case. You can even get spare fabric from your old clothes and sew it into tops that have too-low of a neckline. No more hassles of having to buy a bandeau!
- If You Can't Squeeze It Out, Cut It Off - This one, I read from a magazine. If you can't squeeze out anymore product from the tube, cut the tube open and scrape the remaining product into a clean container. You will save money and save product! None of it goes to waste!
- Turn It Off - When you're in the shower, while lathering your soap or body wash on your body, turn the water off. This will give your skin the concentrated version of your soap/body wash instead of diluting it with water. What does that do? It will make the scent last a bit longer. It also reduces the amount of water that you use in your shower! Win-win!
So, I hope you guys found this somewhat helpful! Comment below if you have other tips that I missed!
