Have a friend or family member who’s trying to reduce trash? Give them the tools to succeed!

If you have a friend or family member who is interested in pursuing a zero waste lifestyle, then this is the perfect time of year to give them some of the tools that will make that transition easier. Giving gifts might seem at odds with the zero waste lifestyle, but the fact is that a few basic supplies can be enormously helpful – and the more supplies one has, the more likely one is to stick with it. So, in an effort to give gifts that are conducive to zero waste success, here’s what we recommend.
