4 Ways to Cut Down on Waste

on April 23, 2021

Our Earth is such a beautiful planet! I could spend hours looking at pictures of all the different amazing places I would love to visit around the world! We should do the best we can to take care of this wonderful place we all call home, Earth! 

One of the reasons I created Spatty was because I wanted to help reduce waste. By using Spatty you are able to retrieve every last drop of product out of the containers. So you are wasting less product and you are throwing out less wasted product. Spatty is also reusable! It is not a one time use product like Q-tips or disposable makeup spatulas. By using Spatty you are helping to cut down on waste! 

Here are 4 other great ways you can cut down on waste:

1. Online Billing

With almost any service you can receive your bills through your email now instead of the bills being mailed to you. This is an easy way to help cut down on paper waste.

2. Use Reusable Water Bottles

Single-use plastic bottles are a big problem for the environment. Plastic bottles take around 450 years to decompose! They also release harmful toxins into the water and soil! By using reusable water bottles you are helping to cut down on plastic waste and you will also be saving money since you won’t have to keep buying single-use bottles!

3. Plan Your Grocery Tip 

Our eyes are a lot bigger than our stomachs! This can lead to overbuying of food that is never used and just thrown out! A way to cut down on the waste of food that is never eaten is to plan meals ahead of time. By preplanning your meals this also allows you to make note of what ingredients you already have so you do not rebuy something you already have. 

4. Buy Less

Cut down on buying things you do not need. This will help with reducing waste but this will also help keep more money in your pocket!
