With so many people stuck at home due to COVID-19, it’s no surprise that delivery orders have increased.
Here are five ways you can reduce waste at home and help prevent possible shortages. 1. Break down your paper and cardboard delivery boxes and put them out for proper recycling. 2. Instead of throwing disposable bags away, find other ways to reuse them such as lining wastebaskets and using them for your next trip. 3. If you’re ordering takeout, reduce waste by opting out of receiving plastic silverware and napkins. 4. Buy a large resealable bottle of your favorite beverages instead of buying multiple smaller cans. 5. Divert food waste from landfills by creating a composting spot in your yard.
