where do I start?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInUp”]Zero waste can seem like an overwhelming concept when you first start to look at it – I 100% remember the feeling of there’s no way I can actually produce ZERO waste. And it’s true! You won’t produce zero waste to start (or ever, probably) but the journey to consciously reduce your consumption is the important part.

Small, actionable steps are the best way to start – they’re what helped me produce less than one trash can of trash per month!

is zero waste expensive?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInUp”]Zero waste and eco-conscious lifestyles get a bad rap at being expensive. They absolutely can be, but only if you expect perfection. I started my zero waste journey in an urban food desert with a salary that put my husband and me just $150 over qualifying for SNAP benefits.

It’s possible to drastically reduce your waste with a little bit of planning. Not easy, but possible.

how can I involve others?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeInUp”]Going zero waste is a long, sometimes painful process. As you get excited to include others in your journey, remember how much you – as someone motivated to go zero waste – struggled at the beginning of your journey!

While easing others into the idea of a zero waste lifestyle, be courteous and careful. The best way to turn someone off of zero waste is by being overly militant. Slow and steady wins the race.
