Earth day is tomorrow, but you can celebrate every day! One way you can do your part to reduce waste is by embracing reusable alternatives when you’re eating at a restaurant or anywhere on the go. Here are a few simple items you can thrift at your local Goodwill to help you create your own green go-to kit!
The perfect way to keep your kit together, great for runs to the store, useful for transporting food – skip the flimsy plastic!
Pass on the paper and go for a cloth option. Practical, washable, durable – just throw a few in your kit!
Make plastic straws a thing of the past by keeping a few of these on hand, plus you’ll never have to contend with the occasional dreaded punctured straw…
Reusable Drinkware/Travel Mug:
Keep your drinks warmer/colder longer and avoid disposable drinkware.
Great for bringing lunches or taking leftovers home. Skip the Styrofoam and plastic to-go boxes!
Handy for avoiding disposable plastic alternatives, easy to clean – keep a few sets on hand so you can wash and rotate.
A great small container option for snacks or drinks.
Have a few for dry snacks or smaller to-go items – flexible, convenient, a must in any kit.
Preparing your own green go-to kit is a fun challenge that will help you avoid unnecessary trash and single-use items in your daily routine. Create your own, and share any new ideas you discover by tagging us on social media @GoodwillGoodSkills!
