Six Ways to Reduce Waste (Besides Purchasing a Wearsos Bag)

Reducing Litter and Waste

The global fashion industry, including leather production, significantly harms the environment. Fast fashion is resulting in extensive textile waste ending up in landfills and harming people and their environment around the world. Therefore, at Wearsos, our mission is to upcycle airline seats into stylish bags and accessories while promoting a greener, more eco-friendly lifestyle. In this post, we'll share six simple yet effective ways to reduce waste in your daily life and lower your environmental footprint.

  1. Remember to bring your reusable shopping bags
    Make a significant shift towards sustainability by replacing single-use plastic bags with reusable totes. Convenience meets eco-consciousness when you keep a reusable bag in your car or by the front door. This seemingly small change, when multiplied by thousands of people, results in significant waste reduction and promoting a greener approach to shopping.

  2. Make an effort to reduce single use plastics
    Reduce your plastic use even further by minimizing your reliance on single-use plastics such as straws, utensils, and water bottles. Opt for stylish and sustainable reusable alternatives that not only make a fashion statement but also contribute positively to the environment. It's a mindful choice that reflects your commitment to a sustainable lifestyle. We suggest reading about The 8 Best Water Bottles and purchasing your favourite. 

  3. Start composting in your home
    You can make a truly transformational change by simply introducing a compost bin into your home. To ensure the success of your compost, incorporate a balanced mix of fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, and green plant trimmings– you can even add small amounts of shredded newspape. Be sure that you compost bin a harmonious blend of nitrogen-rich "greens" and carbon-rich "browns" for nutrient-rich compost. Beyond waste reduction, home composting creates nutrient-rich compost, fostering healthier gardens and landscapes. Learn more about different compost bins here: Lawn Love: Best Compost Bins

  4. Make greener transportation choices
    Consider eco-friendly transportation options like biking, walking, or utilizing public transit. If these forms of transportation aren't available where you live, consider setting up a carpool– not only is it the more eco-friendly option, but it also saves you gas money and helps you connect with your peers. By using these transportation options, you not only save money, but you also promote a cleaner world and a more sustainable future. 

  5. Try to practice more mindful consumption
    Transform your shopping habits by questioning the necessity of each purchase. When you do make a purchase, choose high-quality, durable products that will last for years, reducing the overall waste generated. Even better, explore products made from recycled or upcycled products, such as those here at Wearsos.

  6. Energy Conservation
    Take control of your energy consumption with simple yet effective practices. Make the switch to LED light bulbs, add programmable thermostats to your home, and unplug devices when not in use. These conscientious choices not only reduce waste but also lead to substantial savings on utility bills, proving that sustainability can be both environmentally and economically beneficial.

Incorporating these transformative habits into your daily life not only lessens your ecological footprint but also sets an example for others to follow. As a socially responsible individual or organization, these practices align seamlessly with your commitment to making a lasting, positive impact on the environment.
