Whenever Jasmine Tuan brews a pot of coffee, she makes a conscious effort to keep the used coffee grounds to make a body scrub.
"Many people do not realise how easy it is to make your own luscious scrub from used coffee grounds. It is also kinder to the environment and helps to stretch your money further," says the founder of Kuala Lumpur's Blackmarket pre-loved clothing store, during a phone interview from Singapore recently.
Due to the movement control order (MCO), the Singaporean has not been able to return to Kuala Lumpur to run her business.
Tuan is among a growing number of consumers who are moving towards a zero-waste lifestyle. These days, she makes many of her personal care products, including body scrubs and toothpaste.
And as the owner of a pre-loved store, she isn't bothered about using second-hand clothing.
