誰來減塑?十五年的零浪費減塑心法大公開(下)

居家零廢棄生活分享

談零廢棄實踐的撞牆期  「要保有適度彈性及輕鬆的心態」

自大學畢業以來,Lucy已採行了近15年的減塑生活型態,長久的堅持令人驚詫不已,紛紛好奇她是否遇過「減塑撞牆期」。Lucy大笑,表示:「我也是人啊!」

她接著談起自己曾非常執著於完全零塑的生活方式,甚至幾年前到紐西蘭露營時,也堅持給小孩穿布尿布,以至於夜晚眾人在享受星空美景,她卻在一旁洗布尿布,回想起那時候的自己Lucy也好氣又好笑。

「我覺得每個人有自己的想法,我以前做得很極致的時候,我會覺得我想要這樣,然後我希望對方也可以這樣子。可是我發現這樣可能會物極必反,因為人家可能也有他想要便利的需求。」

例如自己喜歡用肥皂,但老公習慣用洗髮精、沐浴乳等液態清潔劑,她無法強制老公更改喜好,但看新的瓶器這樣來來去去又實在難受。後來她便學會在沐浴用品空瓶前,先拿去無包裝商店填充,這麼一來既不用產生新的瓶瓶罐罐,也滿足了老公的使用需求,皆大歡喜。

「所以我現在用的方式是:我喜歡這樣,因為可以減少一次性的新垃圾,如果你們願意的話,也可以跟著我一起。」

過去的經驗讓她領略到,保有適度的彈性及輕鬆一點的心態,能夠在這條路上走得更長久。

給新手的入門建議:從最容易達成的開始

接觸零廢棄生活以來,Lucy也慢慢發現其實大部分的人並非不願意嘗試更友善環境的生活,而是不知道該怎麼開始、不知道還能夠這麼做。

所以一旦有人身體力行開始這件事,其實漸漸地會有更多人願意跟上。「我是比較屬於那種姜太公釣魚,願者上鉤的類型,就是我就在你面前,做這樣的事情。」她笑著說。

Lucy 給各位減塑新手的建議是:從最容易達成的行為開始著手。例如使用友善環境的產品,或是自備環保杯等等,她掰著手指頭數「自備環保杯就省下吸管、吸管套和杯子三個垃圾了!對地球其實都是一個不小的幫助。」

從小事著手,聽上去似乎是再平凡不過的老生常談,卻是採取行動時最為重要的一步。千里之行始於足下,有所作為從來不是一件易事,但只要我們願意,此時此刻就是我們的零廢棄里程碑。
