This is a situation that we have created for ourselves, which is impacting the entire planet from the food and water we consume, to the plants and animals we share it with. Learning about these areas will enable us to address the problems at hand. You have the opportunity to help make a change through your actions, it all comes down to what you do with your choice.

- Everyone looking to transition to a zero waste lifestyle!
- We all care for the environment, but we may not be fully aware of the environmental problems around us, or, if we are, how to get started to become part of the solution. Our online course breaks this entire overwhelming concept of zero-waste down, in a step by step process, by looking at different areas of our own lives.
I’ve heard you want to be a zero waste champion! And I am so excited to share all the lessons and challenges learned on my zero waste journey.
Well, here it is, I can fit all of my waste that I have produced in the past three years into this jar.
Do you know what started me off on this adventure of mine? It was a simple bit of inspiration from another individual who had a jar just like mine. She inspired me to think about the waste I created and to try it out! That’s exactly what I want for you today, to think a little and to try to move toward a more sustainable lifestyle.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, that’s a joke! There’s no way that I can do it!
Well, I’m here to tell you that it is not. Moving toward a zero waste lifestyle is for any individual out there, whether it is you or me. You see, to live a zero waste lifestyle it is often perceived that you will need a number of things including a high disposable income, time on your hands and access to items that are not always available.
However, this goes against the knowledge that if you were to visit a market in India you could not do this without producing waste, a completely unfounded idea when you think about the generations older than you and I, isn’t it?
Did your grandmother require a plastic bag, or a single use plastic fork or need a car to travel to the neighbourhood market? Of course not.
Why then is it perceived in this way? Quite often it is a lack of awareness about what it means to move toward a zero waste lifestyle. Added to this there is a perception that you need to take all the steps at once! The truth is that it is a journey, you don’t need to achieve everything today but you can make a positive start.
