Looking to reduce waste in your life and embrace sustainability? Here are 5 must-haves for a minimalist home.
Reducing your consumption is one of the best ways to live more sustainably. But don’t worry – living as a minimalist doesn’t mean you have to give up all your favorite things! In fact, many who embrace a minimalist lifestyle find that they actually enjoy life more, stress less, and are generally happier than before… But don’t take my word for it! Check out what Bea Johnson, minimalist home owner and author of Zero-Waste Home says here.
If you are ready to reduce waste in your home and live a simpler, more sustainable life, check out Bea’s top 5 must-haves for a zero-waste minimalist home below:
1. Mason Jars
The jars are great for shopping and storing food, eliminating the need for aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and freezer bags.
2. Reusable Bottles
She opts for Klean Kanteens because they’re insulated and can hold hot tea or cold drinks.
3. Menstrual Cups
These days, menstrual cups are easier to use than ever, and they totally eliminate period waste.
Bea always keeps one in her purse just in case a mess comes up. Plus, she has a ton of handkerchiefs and rags at home to replace paper towels.
5. Reusable Tote Bags
According to Bea, carrying totes and cloth bags to the store can really go a long way toward reducing packaging waste. Opt for bags made of sustainable materials like organic cotton and natural canvas.
