That may be making a recipe from scratch which may otherwise come out of a (non-recyclable) packet or sewing a craft instead of needlessly buying it online with wasteful postage and packaging.
One great way to save money and waste is to create a shopping list and stick to it. So I've created a recipe book to list all our favourite meals. Here is a little snippet and handy guide to making your own personal recipe book.

After a purge of my bathroom cabinet I discovered 7 face wash products so I thought I'd write a quick review on the good, the bad and the green options!
For the love of jam jars: the zerowaster's go to isn't just about looking trendy on Instagram, it's about how you use them!
The easiest way I have found to save money and waste less is to learn to cook from scratch. This completely homemade recipe will impress your friends when you tell them it didn't come out of a packet! #zerowastewin
