I’ll keep this one short and sweet.
Part of the reason disposables are so attractive to consumers is because they eliminate the need for cleaning. Great, cause I mean, who likes cleaning?
If you’re looking to make the leap to reusable items, please know that along with the item comes a lifestyle.
Wash your bags. Wash your cutlery. Wash your handkerchiefs. Wash your beeswax. Wash your containers. Wash everything.
Once I started on my journey, I realized that I was using more water than I had before so to even out my footprint, we went to a rain barrel building class in Alexandria to collect what would become runoff. I ended up giving the barrel to my sister and her husband because it didn’t work with our little rowhome but it’s a great option for people who want to water their lawns and gardens in a more sustainable manner.
We have a basement in our house that will flood in heavy rain so we invested in a dehumidifier. We collect the water from the dehumidifier and use that to water our garden. It helps me feel less guilty when I need to wash extra dishes or napkins.
