Zero Waste Blogging and Social Media
I only started my Blogging and Instagram journey just over 6 months ago. When I retired from a long career in Finance I thought it would be fun to document another chapter in my life.
And, I’m loving it. My Blog Thoroughly Modern Grandma encompasses all the things I’m passionate about. Which means it’s mainly centred around my Family, Travel and Zero Waste.
I hadn’t intended to Blog about my Zero Waste journey. However, it just seemed to be a natural progression and I love sharing what I learn and passing on helpful tips and advice.
One of the things I love about Social Media is the sense of community and I’ve found some great Blogs and Instagram accounts to follow.
I love the visual impact of Instagram and there are some wonderful Zero Waste centric Instagram accounts.
Although, I have noticed most Zero Waste accounts tend to be American or Australian based at the moment. We do seem to be slightly behind the curve in the U.K but I’m sure we’ll catch up.
Three of my favourite uK based Zero Waste Instagrammers
