Living on Less, Recycling, Reducing waste by reducing packaging

Why am I trying to reduce my waste?

Why am I trying to reduce my waste? There are lots of reasons why we humans need to stop creating and throwing away so much waste. Resources are finite. We are polluting our planet. It’s time to wake up. It’s time to change. And change starts from within. This You Tube video is about Dave who writes the blog 365 Days of Trash. I think it explains some of why I am trying to do the things I am trying to do. Over time I will post other inspirations of mine (like Bea from Zero Waste Home).

“The ‘environmental crisis’ has happened because the human household or economy is in conflict at almost every point with the household of nature. We have built our household on the assumption that the natural household is simple and can be simply used. We have assumed increasingly over the last five hundred years that nature is merely a supply of ‘raw materials,’ and that we may safely possess those materials by taking them…. And so we will be wrong if we attempt to correct what we perceive as ‘environmental’ problems without correcting the economic oversimplification that caused them.”

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.
