03 Sep  Going Zero Waste for Zero Waste Week 2018
Rachelle Strauss is the founder of Zero Waste Week – a global campaign designed to raise awareness of waste and encourage people to send less stuff to landfill. Starting on 3rd September, Zero Waste Week 2018 will be all about reducing single use plastics.
As China have announced they will no longer accept imported recycling and Blue Planet II raised mass awareness, the plastic pollution problem has inspired people all around the world to take action. The waste issue and it’s environmental impact is no longer “out of sight, out of mind”
This Zero Waste Week, if you want to get involved, the best thing to do is start by taking an audit of your current household waste so you know what your current situation is. Rachelle shares tips for how to do this and what to do next.
In today’s episode we talk all about how to get started with zero waste, how sustainable living can reconnect you to your local community and accessibility in the ethical space. Today’s episode is all about approaching Zero Waste without getting overwhelmed.
