You Know You're Zero Waste When...


We've all been there. Those classic zero waste scenarios that only one of us can understand. Those looks in the grocery store and the trials of going "no poo". There are just so many unique experiences that define us as being part of the zero waste community! So for some laughs and giggles, let's list out all the ways we know we're zero waste. How many of them can you relate to?
