Learn how to live waste-free and stay healthy

February 27, 2019

The question of how to live sustainably is one that we have all faced. Now more than ever, this is a pressing issue in Australia. Last year, the People’s Choice Macquarie Dictionary Word of the Year was single-use, highlighting a plastics problem we are all being confronted with. They explained:

The Committee felt that single-use has taken off partly because it refers to the cause of an environmental crisis that individuals have the power to directly counter in our everyday lives, unlike the death of the Great Barrier Reef, for example. In 2018 in Australia, we have had the big supermarkets getting rid of single-use plastic bags, and the ABC’s War on Waste  has ensured we feel a level of guilt if we don’t present our barista with a keep cup.

Whether it be on a small scale, such as recycling your plastic and cardboard, or composting leftover food and veggie scraps. Or on bigger projects such as starting a vegetable garden in your backyard (or on a balcony) with the Little Veggie Patch Co or making sure not a scrap of food gets wasted, ever, with Sarah Wilson. We have put together a few books to get you started on your journey to a sustainable, waste-free and more mindful future.
