Trash diet is a term for designing a method of producing the least waste from individual’s daily consumption. Most people called it as “zero waste” movement. This nickname scares many who haven’t learned the process yet. It is not about eliminating all kind of waste. Instead of suffocating individuals, trash dieting is relatively easy to follow.
Cut Shopping Items
In every house, there is one time for big cleaning. It is not just any ordinary cleaning, since all outdated products and leftovers are being thrown out of refrigerator and cabinet. Upon seeing the amount of unused items, you cannot ignore the fact that there are too many of them. The more items to throw means more wasted money.
When it is time to do grocery shopping, keep it mind to buy the basic needs only. Pass or ignore discounted items area. This is where many buyers are tempted to put unnecessary items just because they are “cheaper”. If they are not in the shopping list, skip them.
Say No To Disposable
Buying disposable packaging might seem convenient at first. Stop and think for a minute. More disposable bag or carton at home is equal to more trash. It will be against the whole idea of trash dieting. In addition, they will make the space looks messier in no time.
Instead of grabbing disposable materials, opt for more reusable items. They are glass, stainless cup and clay. Try to think another way to use the material after it is emptied. Easier option is choosing the reusable version of the product. Be open minded and admit that most daily items are reusable.
Is it hard to start trash dieting? Not really. It all comes back to one’s mind power only. By relying on rationality instead of impulsive thought, anyone could pass the diet without any serious problem. If you don’t believe it, try for yourself.
