DIY Cleaning Products: Make your own cleaning products using simple ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils. This reduces the need for plastic bottles of commercial cleaners
Participate in Cleanups: Join local beach or community cleanups to help remove plastic waste from the environment and raise awareness about the issue.
Use natural materials to wrap gifts: Forgo traditional wrapping paper and plastic tape whenever possible and use newspaper, recycled paper, or even fabric to wrap gifts. Use twine or cloth ribbons to secure
Make your period waste-free: There are a number of non-disposable options out there to cut down on period waste, from disposable cups to reusable pads these choices reduce the incredible amount of packaging that most pads and tampons are encased in
