I stumbled on an unexpected way to have zero waste. I was getting ready to do my taxes, but didn't have the program yet to do it on my computer. I took a look online to see what store had the best price for the program I use and came across a download version that is exactly the same as the one I purchase at the store each year. The great thing about the online version is that there is no box, no CD and no sleeve. Which also means no clutter and zero waste!
last year's tax program waste
This is a great way to consider the environment. There are no emissions to manufacture the CD's and packaging, no emissions to transport the product to stores, no emissions to go to the store to buy the product and nothing will end up in the landfill. It was easy to do and the email with the download link was in my inbox by the time I finished the purchase.
Here are links to some websites where you can download a tax program for yourself.
