This is something I know I should have done a long time ago, and I’m quiet ashamed to admit I haven’t changed my ways. Until now!
In 2020 I vow to stop throwing my life away. What do I mean by this? I’m going to stop leading such a disposable lifestyle!
I am super guilty of buying things that are disposable for ease of cleaning or storage and I realise now it’s a terrible way to be. With baby number 2 due in around 12 weeks I’m taking a vow that this year I will do away with all things disposable.
From nappies, to cleaning wipes, food cling film and foil and dare I admit it even throw away foil baking trays! This has got to stop I know.
So I am reaching out to you, what things do you have in your home that used to be disposable but now aren’t? Give me inspiration on where to start. I’ve seen some fantastic beeswax reusable food wraps I’m going to order for the pack up boxes as well as more durable glass water bottles to slow down plastic consumption too.
Another thing I will need to do is research local recycling centres like bottle banks and tin can recycle stations as I feel when my boxes get full I find myself struggling to recycle and the odd item slips into the normal bin, again naughty I know but we should be provided with bigger recycle bins.
Update I have just contacted my local council and there is a recycle station in my local Morrisons which is two minutes down the road from me. So if you wants to know where your local station is don’t hesitate to contact them they were super helpful.
So i’m going to end this post here and go on an online mission to find my first purchases, if you have any reusable items you love please drop them down below.
