We all need to do our part to reduce our plastic waste; here are seven easy ways to boost green living this Earth Day (and beyond)

Here at Sassy Mama, we’re all pretty inspired by our MD, Emilie, who endeavours to live a zero-waste lifestyle. From toting around reusable coffee cups when we’re working in our coffices, to refusing plastic bags at the grocery store (the Singapore government recently determined that using a single cloth carrier bag could replace 125 plastic bags in a year), we’ve all found there are small, easy steps we can take to reduce plastic waste.

See below for a handy downloadable that perfectly illustrates the massive impact a few simple products swaps can make. Why not share this with your kiddos to help them realize their own impact too, mama? (Image clicks to another tab and opens a larger version)

Bamboo Toothbrush: Find it at Naiise
Glass Dental Floss Container: Find it at Neis Haus
Reusable Coffee Cup: Find it at Tangs
Metal Straws: Find at LazadaRedMart, and Neis Haus

Tip 1. Always accessorise - be it a statement pair of sunnies, a bold lip, a beautiful bag or eye catching jewellery these are quick fixes for maximum impact with minimum effort. At Ms.Yin | Ms.Yang we're never knowingly understated!
