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.
