Go Green Go Clean – A Zero Waste Guide
Going Green has always been the talk of the hour for quite a few years, but ARE WE ACTUALLY READY TO LEAVE THE THINGS WE LOVE THE MOST BEHIND AND HAVE A ZERO-WASTE LIVING?
Yes, obviously you can, but only slowly and steadily.
Zero-waste living is never an
overnight changeover, it is a
process. It is a way of lifestyle.
Green lifestyle is the talk of the town, now more than ever. It is everywhere, the social media, the commercials, the banners – With every industry trying to embrace the world that we live in and try not to destroy the already depleting Earth.
The more you understand what going green means, the more you can contribute to making a Change.
“It’s just one plastic water bottle.”

Now, certain questions may arise. Say, for example,

IS IT ACCEPTABLE IF I STILL USE PLASTIC CONTAINERS TO STORE GROCERIES?
SHOULD I JUST THROW AWAY ALL MY PLASTIC/NON-BIODEGRADABLE UTILITIES AND BUY ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS?
EVEN THEN HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT I WOULD BE LIVING A ZERO-WASTE LIFE?

Now you have it. The ultimate answer to all your questions.
Also, note that
"Going green doesn’t mean you throw away all your existing plastics/Non-biodegradable products. It means you got to use them until you get tired of it and they cannot be used anymore. "
