“Single-use plastic is a ticking time bomb for the environment. Avoid it wherever and whenever possible.”
Jennifer Nini, editor Eco Warrior Princess
Transitioning to a zero waste lifestyle takes dedication and commitment, and it doesn’t just happen overnight. For anyone that’s new to the movement, the thought of living zero waste can feel a bit overwhelming.
We are here to let you know that there’s no “right way” to be zero waste. The idea is to do your best to reduce your individual footprint. The most important thing you can do is to continuously ask yourself, “How can I be better?” then just commit to doing that. No one is perfect. The good thing about going zero waste is that you don’t have to be!
Zero waste can mean different things to different people, so you should be fueled by what you personally care about most. Do you despise seeing trash along your local river shore? Are you concerned about sea turtles that may consume plastic litter floating in the ocean? Are you worried that bee species have been in a continuous decline due to pesticide use? Have you decided to go vegan to help save the animals and our environment? Is ensuring that your child will have a healthy, thriving planet to grow up in? There are so many reasons to take greater care of the environment. What’s yours?
Take a look at your house and ask yourself, “What do I use at home, that creates the most waste, and can easily be replaced?”
“We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”
