Our planet is not getting any better. Globalization made it worse, but we can also solve some of the environmental issues through it. If you are selling actual products on your site with offers & coupons, try incorporating some of these zero-waste ideas into your list.
If you notice, some restaurants and major food chains stopped giving out straws to their customers. It depends on what city you are in, some local governments are implementing zero plastic policy. But customers love to drink with their straw, so how are we going to solve this problem? The answer is to replace disposables to reusables. You can sell metallic straws and or straws made from bamboos.
There are tons of products being created every day. Waste is not going to be diminished anytime soon. In fact, the waste problem is getting worse. According to statistics, a number of people are being aware of the environmental issues caused by unconservative buying. So, people will tend to favour companies who are helping the environment. It’s a win-win for you anyway. Here is the big picture: You can use zero-waste as part of your marketing scheme while significantly helping the environment by not being an offender. Instead, you are part of the solution.
Did you know that in a day, you produce at least a pale of trash that will take hundreds of years to decompose? People are so into packaging but that is slowly changing. Sell packageless products like toothpaste tablets, shampoo bar, and more. If the product requires protection or covering, opt for a type of seaweed plastic that can easily decompose.
As entrepreneurs, we also need to protect the sustainability of our natural resources. You are making money by using the planet’s resources. So, it’s our moral responsibility to be part of the solution. We hope that zero-waste craze will not die down soon. It is a type of craze that is helpful. We hope that more and more people would be aware of the conditions of our environment.
