25 Sustainable Solutions: Practical Ways to Reduce Waste in Your Daily Life

Updated: May 26

Initially, it can be a big step to reduce your waste production. But, if you take small steps, it becomes much more manageable while you can still make an impact on the environment. Therefore, I would like to share the 25 best ways to reduce your waste. Most of these tips are very easy and manageable even if you are a beginner to a zero waste lifestyle.


Eat less Meat

The best way to reduce your carbon footprint is to eat meat-free more often. The meat industry is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gasses and is responsible for a lot of deforestation in the Amazon. Not only that, animals are often given hormones to make them grow faster (so you can have your steak faster and cheaper). According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), since the 1950s, they have approved some steroid hormone drugs for use in beef cattle and sheep. These include natural estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and their synthetic versions. These drugs increase the animals’ growth rate and the efficiency by which they convert the feed they eat into meat.
