Happy Earth Day! 🌎
Been trying produce less waste and I’m happy to say I’ve probably used less than 30 plastic straws and disposable cups for coffee in total for the past year! As for boba, I’ve only used 1 boba straw and 60% of the time I got boba, I brought my own cup for almost a year. It’s not perfect, but I’m happy with my results so far. /
Besides utensils and cups, I’m still trying to reduce waste other ways. I’ve recently purchased a hair conditioner bar so we’ll see how that goes! I’ve replaced my dryer sheets with wool dryer balls. I use Swedish Discloth to save paper towels.
There’s still a long way for me to go tho! I don’t think I can give up Kleenex yet because I don’t want to blow my nose into a handkerchief and I have major allergies this season. I’ve been contemplating about a diva cup but it’s too scary. But I did get a Thinx underwear to ease myself in. I haven’t tried bringing my own Tupperware to takeout yet. However, @elainekliu has been bringing her own Tupperware to a pho restaurant each week! (So awesome!) I want to take public transportation, but it’s a little harder for me to in LA. But if you know me, I’m always down to carpool!
Anywho TLDR, let’s be mindful & try to reduce our waste! 💕 at Joshua Tree National Park
