Zone 1: A Low-Waste Kitchen

Zone 1/12: auditing your kitchen

Getting rid of all the plastic packaging in your life. Eradicating food waste. Hours and hours of frustrating research.

An exhausting work day. Wrangling kids. Convincing the rest of the world recycling isn’t the answer to our environmental problems.

The statistics are frightening and the day-to-day is overwhelming.

Trying to de-trash your life and enact sustainable changes while still living your life can feel totally impossible. We want to live a perfect zero waste life right away when in fact making these changes is a slow, habit-building process.

That’s where The Essential Zero Waste Blueprint comes in.

Welcome to Zone 1: A Low-Waste Kitchen! If your zero waste focus is on your kitchen and you don't have 12 months to dedicate, this is the one-month course for you!

If you’re not sure or just aren’t interested in making big changes in another zone, just choose the simpler option (Quick Fix tips).
