Question your purchases ❓

The best product consumed is the one that will last as long as possible, and will be repairable if necessary. That's why it's best to ask yourself a few questions before you buy. Recy-Québec recommends these questions before going to checkout:

❓: Do I really need it?
❓: Could I buy it on the used market?
❓: Is the product repairable?
❓: Are the packaging and the product recyclable?

It's eco-friendly, but also economical! Think about it!

To put an end to over-packaging

Have you noticed that your bins have filled up much faster since 2020 🗑? The increase in online shopping has also had the effect of increasing packaging consumption 📦. And sometimes we see ridiculously overpacked packages arrive! You know, the cardboard box in a plastic bag in a cardboard box 3x too big with a ton of styrofoam to fill the void? 🙄

Here is an article that explains why and what would be the solutions to reach a reasonable threshold:

What takes up the most space in your trash cans?

Tell me, have you looked at the contents of your garbage can or recycling bin? 👀 This is one of the first steps to choose your actions to reduce your waste.

Here are the orange juice containers 🍊, but we don't have a bulk juice dispenser near here. I would love that so much! That would make a lot less waste in our bin! ♻

Before that, it was carbonated water bottles, which we replaced almost 2 years ago with a Soda Stream that we love!! One step at a time, we analyze our trash can and our bin to reduce the content with realistic actions.

What type of waste takes up the most volume in your home? Did you find any solutions? ✌
