Zero-waste living has the misconception that it's more of an expensive lifestyle. And yes, it can be if you opt for 100% pure Egyptian organic cotton bed linen, buy weekly organic fruit and veg boxes and all your furniture is bespoke!
If that's the sort of zero waster you are, where you buy the best you can to avoid re-buying and researching the impact the products have on the environment and the workers producing the product – go for it. It's your life and I'm thinking of you getting awesome nights of sleep on that fancy bedding.
That way of life isn't the single definition of zero-waste living though. It's about buying better when you have to, but it's also about buying second hand, composting, reducing the number of electronics you buy, repairing and repurposing or simply going without.
