On our journey to living a zero-waste, plastic-free lifestyle, it’s always helpful to see what others are doing to cut down on waste.
We love following the eco-friendly and zero-waste Instagram accounts below for their useful tips, inspirational messages and, of course, cool photos. The Instagrammers are spread across the world, sharing in different languages and focusing on different aspects of zero waste living – there are even a couple other zero-waste shops where we find even more inventive, natural and sustainable products to add to our personal zero-waste arsenal.
Get ready to be inspired. (And don’t forget to follow @superbeewaxwraps on Instagram while you’re at it!)
