Zero waste tips Berkeley Refill Store

On this page you will find all our tips to switch to a plastic free lifestyle, step by step.

Plastic is everywhere, it's a real challenge to change habits and find alternatives, it takes a lot of rethinking. We know because we've been there.

Our first advice is: use what you have and then when you have to replace an item, take the time to think about what you need, ask questions to the brands you've found (there's a lot of greenwashing out there unfortunately :-( ) and ask around, there are many groups (Facebook, Reddit, etc) where people share their experience.

Don't forget to celebrate your victories, share them with your friends and family to inspire them, and send a little note to your local businesses and brands that are making so much efforts to offer plastic free solutions.

Thank you for starting this journey and for doing your part to protect our precious planet, we hope our tips will be helpful!
