here are some ways to be less trashy in college start from day one this might seem confusing right now but you can start being less trashy by looking to other people’s trash head to your local supermarket or general store and ask for free cardboard boxes they might have laying around use them to pack for move-in day these boxes can cause up to $10 a box brand new at the office supply stores this way you are saving some money and extending the lives of many boxes other things you don’t need from the office supply store bubble wrap packing peanuts crinkly paper or any of its friend and family they may be useful for you for one day but they will stay in the landfill for many many decades [Music] for extra cushion look no further than your own closet grab fragile items and socks and clothing that you’ll be wearing in college anyway [Music] once you get to your respective new city a college town hit up the thrift store before you hit up the big-box store this is a great chance to save some money and find essential items with a bit more character a chance to be a bit more creative instead of subscribing to a hyper specific college move in shopping lists created by big-box stores a chance to eat you a cereal out of real bowls instead of paper bowls and a chance to own vintage looking knife that won’t break halfway through a meal less trashy most people know about the eco-friendly daytime coffee cup but have you considered bringing your own nighttime party cup I know it sounds a little bit out there but consider the fact that you won’t have to go through five different red cups at every party because you don’t know which one your cup is plus it’s a conversation starter now let’s talk about cleanliness it may feel difficult at times but you need to shower and if you can consider shampoo or soap bars as an alternative to your usual plastic bottle version the final tip is to consider what you are eating you’re most likely going to be eating your major meals at the dining hall so unless trashy eating habit can be as simple as swapping out heavily packaged treats for bulk aisle items or fruit [Music] [Music] if you’ve made it all the way here thanks for watching good luck at school have fun and try to be less trashy

  • Does middle school count

  • Yey for 🌍🌎🌏💕

  • Very helpful and the need of today

  • Ty nifty

  • Wow good tips

  • Sooo Early!!!!!!!!!

  • Good^^
    👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Useful hacks will use in the future 😃😃😃

  • Or, bring cutlery, mug, bowl and dishes from home. You know, the ones you use every day already -.-

  • If only this was for trashy personalities 😂😂

  • Just to let you know, buying storage bins is a better idea than asking for boxes at stores as many stores already recycle their plastic and boxes through balers and make money on that. Not to mention they are reusable for many years and can be used in the dorms to store items like cooking supplies. You also can use newspaper as a form of packing material for fragile items. And for the silverware and plates, just go to the dollar store or Wal-Mart as those will still be cheaper than a thrift store. The last two tips were smart though.

  • MILK FIRST

  • I find this so utterly stupid. No ones are going to go through the hassle of doing any of this..what maybe less then 1% if you're lucky. If you really want to save the planet, you need to implement laws that will force business and people to act a certain way (ban plastic bags, ban plastic containers, ban gas cars, incentives to buy electrics, etc). That's what this girl doesn't understand. You won't have any impact because most of the environment detriment is done by huge corporations and factories. This is all extremely pointless.

  • 1. Use boxes from grocery stores instead of buying
    2. Use clothes instead of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc
    3. Shop at thrifts stores before you go to big box stores
    4. Use a reusable party cup
    5. Use shampoo and soap bars instead of plastic bottled versions.
    6. Eat less heavily packaged treats, and eat more bulk-aisle items and fruit.

    Notes: you are not supposed to rub a shampoo bar on your head. You rub it in your hands to make bubbles, then wash your hair with the bubbles.

    Extra tips from me:
    Try to use tap water instead of bottled water if you can
    If you can, buy ethically/locally sourced food, stationery, makeup, etc
    If your school has a recycling service, use it
    When getting rid of things you don’t need, try donating or selling before throwing away

  • Throwback to freshmen year when my friends and I asked a grocery store for some boxes to move out of college with and to this day onto my third year I'm still using those boxes!

  • you should make russian subtitles !!)

  • How coollllllll! I love Ya nifty

  • Wait are all american college students live in dorms?

  • I am thinking of using giant paper bags for toilet trash, I do that sometimes when I ran out of plastic ones and paper bags takes less time to get destroyed than 1,000 years for a plastic one

  • Ways to use these if you are not in university
    1. If you are moving (or need storage) you can ask grocery stores, etc, for cardboard boxes. You could also buy sustainable storage bins (that you would use long-term) for moving as well.
    2. Use clothes instead of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc
    3. Shop at thrifts stores before you go to big box stores
    4. Use a reusable party cup
    5. Use shampoo and soap bars instead of plastic bottled versions.
    6. Eat less heavily packaged treats, and eat more bulk-aisle items and fruit. You don’t have to quit sweets at all, there are many quick and easy recipes for many of your favorite treats. Tasty is a good site to start looking, and if you like Tasty, I recommend you get the App. It’s completely free, but you might have to log in to use some features (I’m not sure if you can save recipes without logging in). It’s very user friendly, and very easy to search and filter, and you can add recipes to a shopping list in-app

    Notes: you are not supposed to rub a shampoo bar on your head. You rub it in your hands to make bubbles, then wash your hair with the bubbles.

    Extra tips from me:
    Try to use tap water instead of bottled water if you can. If you can’t drink tap water, invest in a filter. In my house we have one right next to the kitchen sink.
    If you can, buy ethically/locally sourced food, stationery, makeup, etc
    If your school has a recycling service, use it. If your building/neighborhood has recycling bins, use them. If you can call a recycling service to come to your house and collect recyclables every week, do that. It’s not very hard to designate a few bins/baskets in your kitchen to plastic, paper, glass, and metal
    When getting rid of things you don’t need, try donating or selling before throwing away (and recycling)

  • More awesome less trash videos please!!!!!!!!!
