Zero Waste?

The aim of this site is to provide specific information to help people who are beginning their journey of waste reduction.

So what is waste? It’s not just what goes into the rubbish bin. Waste is produced any time we underutilise a resource, or if we use something that can’t be replenished.

Waste is everywhere in our society. Almost everything we buy has a waste component to it. The more waste we produce, the more of the earth’s resources are depleted and the environment polluted.

Zero waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused (1).

Practicing a literal “Zero Waste” life is not possible. All of us leave behind some kind of mark. The aim here is waste reduction and with just a few simple swaps this can be easily achieved.

We will show that reducing waste can be simple, satisfying and fun.
