Tips To Find Harmony during ‘Stay at Home’
Finding alternatives to single-use plastic isn't just about helping the environment, it's also about feeling great when you save a dime using reusable products instead. Here are some handy tips to help your hip pocket, and put a spring in your step knowing you're helping mother earth.
Refill a reusable water bottle with tap water instead of forking our your hard earned for disposable water bottles.
Skip The Juice Bar
Squeeze a little lemon, orange or fresh fruit juice into your water bottle. It's refreshing, healthy, and tastes great without the waste.

Refill A Food Pouch
Refill baby food pouches with delicious home made fruit puree instead of buying baby food from the supermarket. Cheaper, healthy, and waste free!
Scrap The Wrap
Stop buying plastic cling film to cover leftover food. Choose a non-toxic, reusable food wrap or bowl cover and make sure it’s easy to clean in the washing machine.
Sustainable Sandwich Wrap
Stop using plastic sandwich bags. Instead use reusable food wraps that are non-toxic and easy to clean.
Use a Cup That Cares
Next time you visit your local barista take a reusable coffee cup for them to fill. Often they’ll offer a discount because they don’t have to supply cups (and you’re keeping disposable cups out of landfill).
Bring Your Own Beans
BYO home-made coffee or tea in a spill-proof travel mug on the way to work and you could save up to $1000 otherwise spent on takeaway coffee's (assumes $4 average per coffee, 5 workdays a week, 50 weeks a year).
Pack You Own Snacks
Pack a snack container with delicious fruit, nuts and nibbles and do a pirouette around the snack food vending machine.
Live Off Leftovers
Want to enjoy a hot meal at work but on budget? Heat up last night's leftovers and pop into an insulated food container and voila, you'll be the envy of all.
