What’s it all about?

Welcome to The Real Zero Waste. A blog about my real journey towards a zero waste lifestyle, and achievable ways to reduce your environmental impact that don’t break the bank and don’t let perfect get in the way of good!

After graduating from university in 2018 with a goal of being a better person and making a difference, I decided to start pursuing a zero waste lifestyle and telling everyone that would listen about my new found passion. It seems like a lot of zero waste inspiration involves having a large collection of matching mason jars full of lentils, and aesthetic wooden kitchen utensils but unfortunately for those of us that don’t have all the money in the world to spend on whole foods, or all day to make our own toothpaste that isn’t exactly achievable. I invite you to come along with me and experience all of my successes and failures during this journey as we learn together what life is really like as a zero waster.
