Have you ever stopped to think about how much trash we create daily? It’s kind of mind-blowing when you think about it. But, do you know that you can make your trash go away naturally? 

Amidst the dilemma our planet is facing as we are dominated by plastics every day, there is still a silver lining to it. However, our actions are required to take advantage of such hope.

In this blog post, we’re going to share some tips on how to eliminate your trash naturally. Are you ready to learn more? Let’s get started.


What Are the Different Ways to Reduce Waste?

These are simple ways to solve the waste disposal problem. Eventually, through practice, garbage problems will no longer be on your list of worries.

  • Recycling 

With the tonnes of rubbish we produce every day, we can recycle them to reduce toxic waste. Materials like plastic, paper, metal and glass are particularly useful and can be recycled and reused.

Through recycling, you can help our environment in various ways. 

  • Reduces carbon footprint
  • Creates new products—the energy usage is reduced by roughly 20% compared to when creating entirely from scratch. 
  • Cleans ecosystem
  • Reduces demand for raw materials.
  • Promotes balance.

  • Utilising Garbage Disposals 

Recycling is not possible for all materials. When considering the harmful effects of improper disposal on the environment, using suitable waste disposal devices can be a workable alternative. 

These garbage disposal systems are capable of shredding huge wastes into smaller fragments that can decompose more quickly, making them ideal for disposing of typical kitchen waste. You can also use compostable bags when doing garbage disposals. 

  • Composting 

Composting is one of the oldest and most effective waste management methods. Composting greatly reduces the environmental harm that waste causes. You can let the garbage produced in your kitchen to decay in a compost pile and then use the freshly formed compost to fertilise your garden or backyard.

Composting doesn’t cost much. Materials with a high nitrogen and carbon content should both be placed in one compact container. Moreover, materials that are dry and brown contain more carbon than those that are green and soft.

Vegetables and woody materials often contain high levels of carbon and nitrogen, respectively. Keep the carbon-rich items at the bottom of your compost pile so they can aid in oxygenation. 

  • Practice Reusing 

If you don’t need many bags for your shopping, you can buy one cloth bag and keep it forever or perhaps use compostable bags. On really hot days, you can reuse soda bottle containers for water rather than tossing them away. The same approach applies to glass, metal and wood.

  • Through Professional Removal 

The majority of homeowners are unsure of what to do when faced with a significant amount of waste, such as doing large home improvements, downsizing or relocating. One way is to split your household waste into different bins and dispose of everyday trash safely.

Fortunately, in Australia, we have a wide network of businesses that remove commercial waste. These service providers have an effective crew in place to remove building debris, e-waste and household rubbish.

  • Use of Compostable Materials 

Use compostable garbage bags or liners instead of conventional plastic bags. Compostable materials or packaging contributes to the sustainability of the planet by providing alternative options to petroleum-based plastics. This is without compromising the useful need for plastic-type materials. 

At Bonnie Bio, our compostable products are made from corn starch. PLA (polyactic acid) is typically made from the sugars in corn starch, cassava or sugarcane. It is biodegradable, carbon-neutral and edible. They have no chemical preservatives to assure you of total compostability and fast biodegradability whilst creating a strong material that is similar to standard plastic. 


Are There Other Ways to Help Mother Earth? 

There are several things you can do to support Mother Earth, from small, everyday improvements to more time-consuming, larger ones.


  • Conserve power. You can reduce the amount of electricity used by turning off lights when not in use, using energy-efficient appliances and charging electronics only when needed. 
  • Plant trees. Trees offer shade that helps lower cooling expenses during the hot months. Plus, they help convert glasshouse gases into breathable oxygen and prevent soil erosion.
  • Conserve water. Reduction measures safeguard the limited quantity of drinking water. Reducing the length of your shower and not running the water whilst you brush your teeth per day can save litres and make a significant difference in only a year.
  • Choose reusable bags. Disposable plastic bags disrupt and destroy ecosystems, kill species and consume non-renewable resources, which all harm the environment. Compostable bags, on the other hand, are naturally sourced and produced everyday materials that can be sent for compost and reduce carbon emissions.
