How to inspire others to live plastic free

If you’re reading this article, it probably means that you’re already on your way to a low-waste lifestyle. You’re making an effort, and you care enough to try and engage more people to do the same. Every little bit helps, so we thank you for everything you’re already doing, and for your commitment to the environment.

If you’re interested in inspiring others to start their low-waste journey, here are 3 simple ways to do it.


You may not believe you are an expert in the matter, but you are an expert in what you’ve tried, what you’ve learned, and what has or hasn’t worked for you. Don’t be afraid to share what you know and talk about the effort you’ve made. If a friend or family member shows interest or wants to know more, you have the experience and the resources to help them.


How did you get started on your low waste journey? Were you inspired by a book, a movie, or a documentary? Was it an Instagram account or a Podcast? Sharing your source for inspiration may provide the support and encouragement your friends and family need to start their journeys to a low-waste lifestyle.


How often have you heard someone say that they “keep meaning to” invest in reusable products? The road to a low-waste lifestyle is paved with good intentions! If you know someone who shows interest, but hasn’t made the leap, consider sending them a gift to get them started. Reusable produce bags, sandwich bags, snack bags, and beeswax wrap are all great ways to get them started. If you’re feeling extra generous and want to spoil this person, consider some environmentally friendly self-care products like natural soap, organic healing salve, or hand-crafted and sustainable candles. These products are easy to find at a number of retailers, but we hope you’ll consider our inventory first! Shop Gifts Here
