I committed to a Zero Waste mantra because...
I wanted to live in a way that aligned with my values.

My friends think I am... great for doing what I am passionate about.

I wouldn't be able to commit to having Zero Waste for the last 24 months without... ambition and patience.

The one thing I find very hard not to create rubbish with is... clothing labels.

Studying Environmental Science at uni made me... aware of the impacts that people can have on the planet, both positive and negative.

To people who say it's too hard to commit to sustainable lifestyle, I say... what makes you think that? There are ways to change little habits that require virtually no effort at all such as bringing a reusable bag to the store as opposed to taking paper or plastic, or bringing your own stainless steel water bottle as opposed to buying water bottles, bringing a reusable coffee up instead of disposable ones... the list goes on and on. That's why I created my blog, Trash is for Tossers, to show people that living sustainably is approachable for anyone.
