The first change you can make is turning the faucet off! And the hose, the dripping shower head... you get the picture. Did you know that just by shutting the water off while brushing your teeth, you can save up to eight gallons of water a day? This goes for shutting the water off in between dishes, while washing your hands, or any of those 20 second activities that go on with the faucet running.

Tip #2 for easy earth day hacks is shopping reusable! It may be easy to shop pre-made or toss items out after use rather than cleaning them up, but shopping eco-friendly goes a long way. That's why all ZoLi items are reusable and made with BPA, phthalate, lead, PVC, toxin-free materials!

Whether it's turning an old sippy cup into a pencil cup, cutting up packaging to be a planter, or even just handing down your un-used items a little less waste makes a big difference

Another way we can reduce on something we may use daily is to bring a reusable cup on your coffee run! You can still fulfill your nitro cold brew cravings - without wasting a plastic cup in the process. Bringing your reusable container to your local coffee shop saves a cup and may even give you a discount on refills! That's what we call a win-win...
