Many always question themselves if going zero waste is expensive? For start, it is for the first few months but as time goes by, most of the products that you bought from zero waste stores will last you for a few years.
For instance, a packet of cheap disposal razor that can only last you 2-3 weeks but a stainless steel razor which may cost RM50 but can last you a lifetime if you take good care of it. The only thing that you need the change is the blade when it loses its sharpness. The blade can be recycled, unlike the disposal plastic razor which ends up in the landfill. It takes a few hundred years to decompose, producing harmful chemicals that may find its way to our water source.
Moreover, there is a rise in the trend of setting up zero-waste stores as many individuals want to reduce single-use plastic as well as products that are harmful to the environment and take up so much space in the landfills. There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean, on the surface and even in the deepest part ocean of the world, the Mariana trench. This shows that plastic has been making its way to all parts of the world and even in the ocean. We can't run away from it.
So why are we making a fuss on single-use plastic? This is because animals are dying and eating the wrong food because of our bad habits. We too are also affected by this single-use plastic in the ocean since we consume seafood. The marine life in the ocean that feeds on this microplastic is also indirectly infecting us and causes harm to our body once we have accumulated a large amount of microplastic in the body which can trigger a reaction that damage our internal organs and bring sickness to us.
Hence, there are zero-waste bulk stores like Liquid Etc. which sells affordable liquid solutions that make a difference in the world we live in.
They have a wide range of products for you to choose from. Look at the cost of dishwashing liquid, how affordable they are as a zero waste solution. Best of all, it does not come in single-use packaging like the ones you get in the supermarkets. Hooray!!!
WOW! Look at their body cleanser! So cheap! I believe whenever we pressed the pump of the soap dispenser, it usually pumps out 100ml and the cost is only as low as RM0.80 but for the one you usually buy at supermarkets is 500ml and it will cost you nearly RM25 . That my friend comes with plastic packaging. On the other hand, at Liquid Etc, you can bring your own bottle to refill any amount of liquid you want. What a wonderful eco-friendly way of shopping for your household supplies.
However, if you don't have time to visit their stores, we have good news for you. They are bringing their store to you.
And they have an offer too in conjunction with #plasticfreejuly
By the way, if you are a fan of sourdough,then you can pre-order them before you drop by their store to refill your liquids.
Lastly, they have drinks too if you are a fan of Oat Mil or Hazelnut chocolate... This is a great choice for those who rarely have time for breakfast or perhaps something light for your tea time before your evening workout session? It is healthy too :D
