Hi! I am so Glad you are here! Sit down, make yourself at home.
You are probably here because you want to reduce your waste, spend less money and be happy! Or at least that’s what I’m assuming, for all I know, you are reading this at 3am, 8 coffees’ in and down a deep google hole from one picture of a cute ocean creature eating a plastic bag.
I want to tell you a little about my story. About 6 months ago, I was about the opposite of Zero Waste (or so I thought, but more on that later), and I had the stereotypical “there is nothing we can do about it so why care?” attitude. But slowly, over the course of about a month or so, my whole view shifted. I watched a docu-series called War on Waste (http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/war-on-waste/) , I began hearing about the china recycling changes that were happening, and I happened to come across a video of Lauren signer talking about her ”4 Years of Trash Jar” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuABgFsv5pw&t=14s).
I came home and told my partner what he was in for. “We are going to stop using single-use plastic and buying new stuff” I announced one evening. I think I actually used the word I, but he knew the whole household was about to change.
Fast forward 6 months, and while I have learned a lot, I am no expert. Every day, I have Low Impact/Zero Waste wins, but every day I also have failures – some I don’t even realize until much later.
I want to take you on the Journey with me. Let’s learn together, share tips and resources and minimize the waste!
