Going Low Waste: Where to Begin

Updated: Jun 26, 2022

Ever feel like there's so much pressure to be perfect when pursuing sustainability, or don't even know where to begin?

Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to take it all in at once. Especially because most of us didn't learn any of it in school and we're figuring it out as we go. Mistakes are bound to happen. We'll know more in a year than we know now for sure. But if we're constantly worried that we're not doing enough, this is a habit that will be hard to keep.

It'll get the ball rolling and you'll be on your way to becoming low waste in no time.
