  1. Thank you so much for the love on this video! If you want to learn more about zero waste, here are recent collabs I did with Jamie Kate, a zero waste blogger and YouTuber:

  2. I would like to contribute.
    Libraries and second handed books are a great option too.
    For period purposes there is also special period underwear that you can wash traditionally if you don’t like the cup.
    This video was extra helpful thank you so much. I’m getting started with my zero waste journey. 🌞✨🌱

  3. by the way, Tab for a Cause is another chrome based tab that puts the money it gets from ad revenue into humanitarian issues, such as human rights, education, and clean water. it lets you choose where the money you earn goes, too.

  4. I started my journey with buying art supplies in cardboard or metal case. Cardboard packaging I reuse in crafts and metal cases I can use for organising my school bag (I store there extra pencils, pens, fineliners, erasers, ruler, sticky notes, paper clips and in some also my pads). Paper scraps I cut in pieces (the bigger ones) and use them as notes paper or labels for containers. I also don't use cotton swabs for my doll repaints, instead I use pieces of fabric that I can't turn into clothes. I can use them for a long time. Plastic packaging from ice cream is used for storage (we wash it and then I paint it or leave it the way it is) or as flower pots. Instead of packing my lunch into plastic bag, I pack it in containers and if it's something warm I wrap it with fabric. I don't really like bottled water (it has a weird taste) so I drink tap water or if mom bought 5 litre bottle of water, I drink it. Those bottles don't go to trash, we give them to my grandma and she uses them to carry water for her animals.

  5. Honestly i dont think using anything made out of bamboo would help, a lot of enviroments are in danger because of that particular reason…

  6. I really love zero waste videos bc it inspires me to use less and less trash everyday when I become an adult and move out I want to live a zero waste lifestyle #saveourplanet

    Edit – Omg she hearted my comment!!!!
    Thank you so much 😊

  7. You can also get reusable menstrual pads that you can wash in the washing machine and reuse if you don't want to use a menstrual cup!

  8. My sister is vegan and is trying to get into zero waste so we have bamboo toothbrushes, metal straws, and like 30 reusable bags

  9. if you want to use e-books but find that they are expensive, find out if your local public library uses borrow box. borrow box is an app that is essentially the same as a library but online. you just need a library card and then you can download whatever books you want for free. i live in ireland and i’m not sure what other countries this is used in but it would be worth looking into if you don’t want to spend money on e-books. hope this helped someone 🙂

  10. Hiiiii guys just wanted to say there’s no use of a straw! Just drink out of a cup normally, it isn’t that hard. Even with metal/silicone straws, it takes a factory to make those straws! So just don’t use or buy any straws

  11. I’m 13 and I finally convinced my mom to get me 6 metal straws. It’s all I can do right now, since my mom is annoying and thinks the earth is “gOnnA Be fInE”

  12. Ok so, I like trying to be zero waste and totally respect you! But I just can’t use that cup for my period ☹️🤣🤣🤣 So I’m just going to use pads and tampons! 😐😟 uhm.. I never tried it but never will… sorry 😐

  13. The problem with being zero wasted or trying to be is hard because my family has a lot of allergies and my dad isn’t really with us and doesn’t really agree with us and won’t do anything differently but thanks!!!!!

  14. I am 11 but am so environmentally conscious. I recently became a pescatarian to cut down on methane emissions, I try and use as little waste as possible, own 5 metal straws, and just ordered a bamboo toothbrush. I wish that everyone would acknowledge that global warming is a thing and that the earth isn't going to get better all on its own. So many people are in denial and it is scary the way that we are headed. PLEASE try and help the earth as much as you can. Don't use plastic bags! Get reusable straws. Just try and pitch in and help our planes was much as possible. 🌎

  15. for those who love traditional books: THE LIBRARY EXISTS and treat it as a excursion, you’ll enjoy yourself so much 🥰

  16. Hi. I have a legit question. I have my keep cup and I love it. But I drink a lot of coffee. Handing over a gross coffee dripped cup is just not something I can do. Is there something I can keep in my bag or car to clean out the cup after I use it before I get a refill?

  17. Yay! I feel like our planet is getting better!
    Tip: instead of using parfumes or spray deodorants, try using deodorant roll, it works very good as a parfume too!

  18. at a grocery store i saw plates and cups that looked like paper plates and red plastic cups, it was pretty cool!
