About

Yes, but why blog about it?!
A place where I can share my journey to zero-waste: the frustrations, challenges, and successes that come along for the ride.  A place to network with others who have started and are maintaining the same journey, to share resources, and to get that much needed support when you can’t find it in your closest circles!  To Zero-Waste!  And all the pretty non-things that come along with it 🙂

So, what, you think you’re going to save the world or something?!
My Zero Journey started in 2013.  After watching “The Clean Bin Project” documentary, I was blindsided by the obvious problem that is waste.  Starting with my own habits, I slowly started to change my lifestyle habits to force waste out of my life.  I’m not there yet, but I’ve made many changes and have experienced many successes.  If I can inspire just one person along the way, it’s worth it. So, in short…yes.

Some say it’s fun…
I’m not even gonna lie!  Zero-Wasting is not only a great movement and our responsibility to our planet, but it’s actually a fun and pretty hobby with all the diy and creativity and resourcefulness that happens.  I also dig compost.  Get it?  I dig it.

I’m sorry, who are you?
A few words about me behind the blog: teacher, compost educator, animal enthusiast, reader, writer, gardening amateur, traveler, bilingual, hiker, biker, rescuer of lone bananas, patter of cats, and lots of laughs!

      • Yep it’s me! We’ve owned an acreage for 2 yrs now and are learning a lot about homesteading/self-sustainability. People really need to start growing more food and creating energy independently. To become stronger, the system needs to become decentralized in a big way. Right now most people rely so heavily on centralized sources for food, power, money and then they waste sooooo much of it. And what happens if those services are not available one day. The hub and spoke design is weak! What we need bad is a mesh network of farmers and recyclers globaly. I won’t let this turn into a rant , but I do want to say your doing good work and I’m inspired! It was kinda funny I was having a conversation about learning recorder in elementary and your name popped into my head (probably because you were best in class as far as I remember) then I Googled your name (lol sorry if that’s weird but hey look what I found!) I realy hope to travel to Germany soon, I feel the urge to explore my heritage and learn the language.

        *Cheers*
        Merry Christmas!
