How to Stay Zero Waste During The Coronavirus Outbreak

I'm sure you've been staying up to date with the news - coronavirus is pretty much all anyone's talking about. It's on our televisions, phones, laptops and tablets.

Zero Waste Hand Sanitizer


Zero Waste Hand Sanitizer

In need of some zero waste hand sanitizer? With panic ensuing over the coronavirus this March, I don't blame you. Unfortunately, finding hand sanitizer may be one of the hardest things to do right now. Thankfully, you can always make your own. However, I will say that hand sanitizer is NOT a replacement for good old soap and water - so make sure you're washing your hands! Hand sanitizer is a great thing to use in a pinch though, when you can't directly access a sink. The CDC recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you've been in a public place. If you don't have access to that, then hand sanitizer will do - but you have to use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Thankfully, this natural DIY recipe does, so you have nothing to worry about. Here's how to make your own zero waste hand sanitizer.
