Ways to Live a Little Greener and work towards Zero Waste

Zero Waste starts by refusing things. Whatever you still have and use you should reduce to save resources. Substitute disposables for reusable options, and recycle things. Separate what little rubbish you have left and make sure to recycle. Compost what’s left and let it rot.

Zero Waste Week Blogging Ambassador

I’m so excited to say that I am one of this year’s  Zero Waste Week’s Blogging Ambassadors.

I’m not a zealous environmentalist, and I’m certainly not perfect when it comes to living a Zero Waste lifestyle.  However, I do have an awareness and passion for working towards a Zero Waste Lifestyle and I’m so pleased to add my voice to the campaign.

I’m happy that any small change is a change for the better and some people will do more than others and that should be totally acceptable.

The campaign is primarily an online social media campaign, which has grown significantly since it started back in 2008.
