Living sustainably does not mean that we have to make big changes in our lives like moving to a house in a tree or feed on grass. All we need is to make some small adjustments in our daily life to reduce the waste we generate in a significant way. With a little motivation and the 9 tricks that you will see below you will become a recycling machine.

1- Compost

Quiet, although it seems that creating compost is something that is only available to the most expert, It is really something very easy that only requires a little time, effort and space. The process consists of transforming the remains of food or organic matter into a dark and nutrient-rich substance called "humus" that can be used as fertilizer for any plantation. Have a trash can at hand where you can only throw away the organic remains of food such as fruit, vegetables, eggshells or coffee grounds.

2- Bulk Purchase

Buying in bulk is a great way to reduce the waste generated by packaging as well as save us some money. The dispensers to buy in bulk are usually composed of several rows of containers with shovels where you can choose the desired amount you are going to buy.

Buy only the amount you can consume before the product expires.

3- Use your own reusable bag

You can avoid using disposable plastic bags if you carry a reusable bag with you each time you make the purchase. Many of these bags are made with durable materials and easy to fold for easy storage in the car or bag and so always have them at hand.

4- Know your trash

It's worth a lot of time to take a few minutes a day before throwing your waste in the trash. It is important to know what kind of packaging and products we have in our hands and how we have to do to recycle them correctly. In some cases we will even have to decompose the container or container that we are going to throw in the trash in order to separate the different materials that compose it and thus ensure that they are recycled correctly.

5- Replacing paper for fabric

It is true that disposable paper products are very useful but they are easily replaced by other materials with a longer lifespan as is the fabric. Use microfiber cloths, old shirts or cloth napkins to avoid as much as possible the use of this type of disposable products.

Being concerned about the environment does not mean that we have to neglect our personal hygiene. Try using toothbrushes made of wood instead of plastic and use natural cosmetics instead of the brands you find in drugstores.
