ONE: The Zero Waste Cookbook

This cookbook teaches you how to cook without wasting any scraps that you’d typically throw away. The book features over 100 recipes and not only shares delicious recipes but will also inspire home cooks in their own zero waste living journey.

TWO: Glass Storage Jars

I have these in a variety of sizes and love them! The glass jars for look nice, they’re diverse and it’s easy to see what I have. I take them to my local bulk goods store to stock up on pantry items. Containers are a staple for zero waste living.

THREE: Almond Cow

For those who love nut milk, the almond cow is a great investment. It prepares nut milks quickly and easily. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it, I personally have been eyeing it. Here’s a $10 off coupon!!

FOUR: Nut Bag

A nut bag is a great cost-effective way to make nut milks at home. A nut bag will eliminate cheesecloths or coffee filters and can be used over and over. They’re an excellent gift for someone who is looking to step up their own zero waste living lifestyle.

FIVE: Tushy Bidet Attachment

Here me out on this…! This would only be a good gift for someone that has expressed interest. This isn’t the type of item you could completely surprise someone with. An attachable bidet is affordable and will reduce waste and costs!

SIX: Shampoo & Conditioner Bars

For someone who is newer in their zero waste living journey, shampoo and conditioner bars are a thoughtful way for the recipient to try something new. I personally love these shampoo and conditioner bars from Unwrapped Life and they come wrapped in paper, zero plastic!
