I never bought a single-use razor in my life. So ever since I started shaving I bought a razor with a removable head. It also made more sense to me. You buy a package of 6 heads and have it for like 1,5 years (I changed them every 3 months). I figured I would save a lot of money with this and it is better for the environment.
Last year I decided to step up the game with a stainless steel razor. I love my new razor! When I first bought it, I was too afraid to use it because I thought I would cut myself. So the razor was sitting on a shelf for months. But after I overcame my fears, I just don`t want to go back. Beside that, they look super cool and are way more stylish than a single-use razor.
When I was a child reverse vending machines would be in every supermarket. Returning the bottles was always a highlight because I could see how much money I got back. Now after years without them, they are finally celebrating their comeback and I am really happy about it!
You can find them in almost every supermarket again.
Returning and Recycling bottles helps to reduse the waste of resources and you get some money back as well. In Austria you can retourn
- deposit bottles made out of glass,
- swing-top bottles,
- bottle crates,
- deposit beer bottles
- deposit PET bottles
- 1 L glass bottles for mineral water
UPDATE: Did you know that 35 billion beverage packages (bottles, cans, ...) are being returned every year, worldwide for recycling?
Well, I didn't but I think it is a great number already. Huge shout out to all the companies and people participating already! I hope our community will grow even bigger 💚
How cool is this? Bring your own eggbox or take one of these and fill them with just as many free range eggs as you want/need. You can reuse the eggbox every time you go shopping again. Thank you Spar for this great initiative !
I am a huge fan iDoc! Everytime I have a problem with my iPod I go to iDoc. These guys are very competent and fix your problem in no time for a very good price.
When your phone, laptop, ... breaks think twice befor you buy a new device. Better save money and resources. Repairing your device is often cheaper than buying a new one, you just have to know where to go. When I first wanted to repair my iPod at one of Apples official repair stores I was stricken how expensive it is and how complicated it would be to send my device to another place and then get it back only in a couple of weeks.
Wastelady's Tip: on their homepage at.idoc.eu you can even find tips on how to repair your electronic devices yourself
Hey there, my name is Fiona. I love travelling and getting to know different cultures. Because of travelling I realised I don't need many things to live a happy life. My transformation started ten years ago with my first big trip to India, since then I live a very minimalistic lifestyle. For a couple of years now, it is not only minimalistic but also zero waste.
