Reducing waste by reducing packaging, Zero-Waste Fast Food extras

Thrift store kids golf bag and more.

My husband golf’s. I don’t. People could be injured… but I am all for my kids learning the sport. I lucked out Friday and found a really great kids golf bag at Value Village. It looks just like Dad’s but smaller. We will have to find better clubs (just 1 or 2) but for $14.99 it was a great find.

Value Village also helped me solve the need for two pairs of dice. They are on the school supply list for this year. Weird, right? It must be for math but it still irritated me. I now have a small bag of used dice. Great for a six-year old. If he loses any I have replacements!

The final thing I picked up from VV was a pair of pillow cases. I am working on a small laundry solution and will post about it another day.

Have a great Sunday!


Here’s yet another zero-waste extra… A waste free Salted Caramel Decaf Mocha at Starbucks. Remember that Starbucks has real cups and plates to enjoy your coffee and snack inside. Beware the chocolate caramel pretzel rods though. They come wrapped individually in plastic which they remove before displaying.

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
