Zero Waste Remedies for Cold + Flu Season

In dire need of zero waste remedies for cold and flu season? I hear you! With the cold weather here, everyone is starting to feel sick (sadly). Come winter, I usually get a cold at least once. Do I want it? No. Does it happen? Yes. Ugh, it's so annoying. And man, is it wasteful! I cannot tell you how many tissues I go through when I have a stuffy nose. Piles upon piles. Yuck. But thankfully, there are some zero waste alternatives to this. Also, along with cutting back on waste, these zero waste remedies are more natural, thus better for your overall health. They're honestly holistic remedies that I've come to love and enjoy thoroughly over the years (though some are a bit new to me and I'm just starting to incorporate them into my life). Regardless, everything I suggest here is something I've tried myself, or highly recommend after doing my research. Nature often knows exactly what we need to heal ourselves, so of course these remedies are all natural. Mama earth knows best, after all! Here are some zero waste remedies for cold and flu season.

How to Remove Labels From Glass Jars

As a zero waster, I tend to collect a lot of glass jars, bottles and containers. I can't help myself really. Once a product empties, it would be a waste to just toss a perfectly good jar away.
