What I'm doing to be..., zero waste

What I’m doing to… learn more about zero-waste.

I’m very curious about other people’s zero-waste journeys. Sometimes you just need to get out there and find out more information. Earlier in the week I received an e-mail invite to watch the documentary “The Clean Bin Project”. Within minutes I was on the phone to my mom asking for her to babysit. This movie has been on my radar for a while now. This local couple, Jen and Grant, tried zero-waste for a year and survived. It was everything I could have hoped for and more. There are people out there trying to change their thinking too! From the repeated “No bag please!” to the request for the hunk of cheese just put in a Rubbermaid container, I felt like “Hey, this all seems familiar.”. This movie is a great way of getting the zero-waste message across to people. It’s not just a bunch of natural yogurt eaters being crazy. It’s real people trying to make a real change.I enjoyed how they made it a game of who could make less garbage over a whole year. It is a movie worth watching.Could you go zero-waste for a day? a week? a month?

About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
