Due to Corona 19, we ordered a lot of food to be delivered, and garbage also increased.

The so-called'zero waste' that minimizes waste by reducing the use of unnecessary disposables is gaining sympathy.

Reporter Jeon Yeon-nam will tell you how to practice it.


Ahn Hye-mi, a college student, puts a pot in her bag and heads to a restaurant instead of ordering food for delivery.

[It's just one maratang, please wrap it in a pot.]

Use powdered toothpaste without a container, and use a cotton pad that can be washed several times.

We are practicing'Zero Waste', a life that minimizes waste discharge by reducing unnecessary use of disposable items in daily life.

[Ahn Hye-mi/College Student: (Reducing disposable items) Honestly, it's a little annoying, right?

However, I like that I am proud that we are reducing garbage that much.]

As the time to stay at home increased due to the prolonged COVID-19 outbreak, the amount of garbage, such as daily goods, increased significantly due to delivery food and delivery.

This is the background of the voluntary movement to reduce waste generation through social media.

There are also shops selling items that do not generate garbage at all.

Here, you can refill cosmetics and hand sanitizers, but you can purchase as many products as you want in reusable glass bottles that you borrow here.

'Eco-friendly' stores that offer paper and cloth bags without using disposable plastic bags have also increased significantly.

The'good consumption' craze that a little discomfort saves the planet is gaining sympathy with the increasingly serious garbage problem.
