Zero Waste Gear

Zero Waste Gear is  a collection of common items you can use to cut down on trash and single use plastic waste. You can keep these items in your purse or backpack, car or desk at work. Check out the items below and think about how you can fit a few (or all!) of them into your daily routine. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on these items because you can use what you already have in your kitchen or buy items secondhand.
