Hello there!

A few days ago I started reading a book which deals with the reduce of waste.
I think everyone can contribute a small part to reduce all the rubbish we throw away every day :)

1 Reusable coffee cups

If you're also addicted to coffee like me you should definitely get yourself a reusable coffee cup

My university already offers such reusable cups at the cafeteria

when I'm using this cup I get get a reduced price for my coffee (it costs about 20p less)

Some coffee companies (e.g. Starbucks) are also offering such reusable coffee cups + a reduced price when using it

2 Order a coffee to have in

You also can avoid waste when ordering a ‚coffee to have in‘

Take time for a little break - coffee tastes much better if you're not in a hurry! :)

3 Fabric bag

take your own fabric bag always with you when you go shopping

two advantages: no plastic waste + looks much cooler ;)

4 No receipt

if you don't need your receipt (e.g. grocery shopping) say at the cash desk that you won't need it

...then the receipt don't has to be printed (less paper is used)

5 No advertising 📩

Tell the postman that you don't want to get ads in your letterbox

I hope these simple but helpful hints might give you an idea of how to reduce waste.

Have a good (and maybe a waste-free) day!

Cheers, xx
