One may also ask, what is living zero waste? Zero-waste living means aiming to reduce landfill-bound trash to the bare minimum—a worthy goal considering that a plastic bag could take up to 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill. When you look through your trash, you'll probably find discards that could be recycled, reused or repurposed.

Also question is, can a zero waste lifestyle be achieved?

The material waste is primarily the wash water, detergent, transportation, heat, bottle caps, etc. While true zero waste is never achieved, a life cycle assessment can be used to calculate the waste at each phase of each cycle.

How can you go zero waste?

Here's how you can embrace zero waste living without buying anything.

  1. Glass Jars. Glass jars are your zero waste friend!
  2. Line Your Bin without Buying Bin Liners.
  3. Eat Your Food Scraps.
  4. Compost your food waste (for free)
  5. Cleaning Cloths / Wipes.
