Food waste, plastics, and paper goods make up more than half of the waste in U.S. landfills, according to a study. Other countries have had the same problem. It is a global issue that must be addressed. These are just a few  to begin with, but they will go a long way toward reducing global waste.


I have listed 4 reusable things found at home which are beneficial

Tea bag

Teabags that have been used should not be thrown away. Allow the tea to cool completely before pouring it into a spray or squeeze bottle to hydrate your skin. Then sprinkle it on your skin or use a cotton swab to apply it. Green tea, in particular, is excellent for rehydrating dry skin.


Plastic Containers

Use the empty mayonnaise, peanut butter, and other jars to freeze soups, sauces, gravies, and other leftovers. They’re fantastic! You can use them as storage for anything or as containers for your household condiments. Do you know that every second, over 1,500 plastic bottles or containers end up as waste in landfills or in the ocean?

Yes! That’s a lot of trash. As a result, we are able to contribute to the reduction of waste.


Coffee Filters

Coffee filters are a simple and cost-effective technique to keep weeds at bay on your garden plants. When you use the filter with ground coffee, you’ll receive a fantastic fertilizer. Coffee contains a variety of essential elements that help plants develop.

So don’t toss out those coffee filters right away. Your plants are ready to receive their perfect fertilizers.


Plastic Bags

Is a cold front on its way? or is the winter season approaching? By gently putting a plastic bag around sensitive plants, you can protect them from overnight frost. By keeping warm air within to protect roots and branches, the plastic buffer will keep the harsh wind and chill at bay. In these situations, plastic bags come in handy.

Do you know that plastic bags take 300 years to degrade? They decompose into small poisonous particles that contaminate the soil and waterways and enter the food chain when animals consume them by accident.
