Beautifully Organised: What's in my Zero Waste Handbag?

What's in my Zero Waste Handbag?

What's in my Zero Waste Handbag:
  • Keep Cup: I have a tall Thermos style one that's great for keeping tea warm for hours, and a smaller one that fits under coffee machines at cafes.
  • Cutlery Roll: I have 2 sets of knives, forks and spoons that I roll up in a sandwich wrap and put in my handbag so I don't need to use plastic ones (if you don't have a dedicated wrap or roll, a tea towel or hand towel will do)
  • Drink Bottle: I fill it with water when I'm about to go out - and if I'm going somewhere I know I can refill at, I'll only fill it halfway at home so it doesn't make my bag too heavy
  • Hankie: I use one per day and then just throw it in the laundry with my clothes at shower time. I'm still working on converting the kids to hankies too, hopefully soon we'll all have switched!
  • Foldable shopping bag: I use the SAKITOME brand but any will do, or any other light bag you have can be folded and put into your handbag, no need to buy something new

Hope that helps you if you're thinking about trying more sustainable living options on a day to day basis :)

If you have any other ideas for me to include, let me know!

  1. Fantastic post. Love these ideas. So easy to do. Thanks for sharing and inspiring us all.

  2. How all this fits in your bag?? Or is it not the one on the pic?:)
    I love messenger bags but all I can squeeze in there is a wallet, phone, an apple and few minor hygienic things. Then of course I have cookies, tea and coffee unlimited in my college paper service. If not that I would probably need a huge bag.

  3. Paraphrasing or rewriting of an academic paper is often necessary for various reasons, for instance, it may be intended to demonstrate your comprehension of the work of another person. However, many students often struggle highly with the work of rewriting. They cannot understand how they rewrite the same paper in a different way, keeping the meaning intact. Moreover, they often cannot cover all the points in the rewritten works. Thus, most of these students want to make a request to someone, saying- Will you rewrite my paper? If you also have the same appeal, then we can move towards helping you with our paraphrase help what is paraphrasing .

  4. New school year starts and students have to deal with their homeworks, essays and summaries as basis. Some students get through this on their own meanwhile others face difficulties. While some students still need to work homeworks take a lot of time and energy. Hence the question arises “Who can help me to write my essays?”. It's obvious that they'll want to apply to source like this

  5. All paper writing companies try to assure you in providing the best services to attract as many college students as possible. Of course, there are services that keep their promise. However, there are also services that do not care about delivering quality essay help but only want to get your money. Read the detailed edubirdie reviews in order to not be scammed.
