Zone 7: Your At-Home Garden
Zone 7/12: growing your own food
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.
