8 zero waste items to pack when you’re on the go

When we’re out and about it’s easy to forget about the waste we accumulate through take-out food, coffee, or shopping trips.

These are our top 8 items you can pack to help curb waste while you’re on the go: 

Produce bags 

These are great when you’re heading to your local Sunday market or off to the grocery store. 

Reusable water bottle

Landfills are overflowing with discarded plastic water bottles which take up to 1000 years to decompose. Keep a reusable water bottle with you whenever you’re heading out the door to avoid adding more plastic bottles to the waste pile. 

Lunch box

If you’re going to meet friends for a picnic in the park, why not pack a lunchbox with your favourite foods to take with you? You could also opt to use your lunchbox to store any food you pick up while you’re out. 

Tote bag

One of the most versatile items! Great to take with you when meeting up with friends, to the grocery store, or folded in your handbag in case you ever need it. 

Bamboo utensils

Keep a set of bamboo utensils in your bag so you can forgo the plastic knife and fork with your next take-out meal. 

Coffee cup

There are so many great options for reusable coffee cups, this is a staple that you can keep by the door so it’s ready whenever you leave the house. 

Reusable straw 

Straws are one of the top contributors to plastic waste around the planet with millions discarded every day. This is another easy item to keep stashed away in your bag, you never know when you might need it. 

Cloth napkin 

Take a pass on the paper napkins and use a cloth napkin instead. These are also handy for cleaning up any unforeseen spills!
