CREATE LESS WASTE THIS SUMMER

Summer is here and we are excited about trips to the beach, camping with family and friends, and backyard barbecues and bonfires! Unfortunately, without proper planning, Summer fun can also create a lot of waste. Here are a few tips that will help you create less waste this Summer:

1. Take reusable cutlery with you on picnics and road trips. I like to have a set for each member of my family in my car so that we are prepared for any impromptu food stops or barbecues!

2. Invest in a set of cloth napkins (or make some out of old towels). Not only are they reusable but they also take your picnic game up a notch! Wrap your used cutlery in them after your meal and when you get home you can toss the napkins in the laundry basket and the cutlery in the sink.  So easy & waste free.

3. Pack food in beeswax wraps and reusable snack bags instead of plastic wrap and baggies. We’ve got beeswax wraps and reusable snack pouches from some awesome Canadian companies!

4. Challenge yourself to go the whole Summer without a single use beverage bottle!  Always bring a reusable water bottle with you. It might take a few tries to get into this habit, but once you do you will never leave home without it. I always keep a couple of bottles filled with water so that it’s easy for me to grab one and go when I am in a hurry!
