First consideration to choose the easiest swaps for you.
I have been trying to reduce my waste for couple of years now and I can tell that there are some swaps that are much easier than others. I found that the easiest was to start with my bathroom and I highly recommend that you start there as well.
Reusable bathroom products are easy to find, it does not require extra time from you (or very little), they are easy to use and most of the time, much healthier than the products sold in grocery stores.
I believe I began with my bathroom because I love skincare, so it was fun and easy to look for swaps. I advise that you start with what you like so it’s enjoyable. Once that is done, you will be ready to challenge yourself with what is a bit more difficult for you because you will have gained momentum.
Take it easy, one step at the time, have fun! There is no better way to be sustainable than doing it at your own rhythm.
