WARNING! This post is going to be a little bit longer than my others, but it’s worth it.
There is no way that I can tell you about everything you need to know about living a zero-waste life. Most of it is just common sense. It can be daunting, as I’ve said, to even know where to begin. I have decided that sharing some of the bloggers and vloggers that live a zero-waste life with you would be a great idea! What do you think? I thought you would like that idea.
Bea Johnson (@zerowastehome) of zerowastehome.com is full of some great information. She’s a goal for some people and a guide for others. For me, she gave me ideas. I mean if she could live this way with a family of four and only producing a quart sized jar of trash per year that is a goal!
Kathryn Kellogg (@goingzerowaste) of goingzerowaste.com is a new find for me. I think she may even be the one who came up with the Zero-Waste Challenge for June. I know it’s on her blog along with some great tips. Don’t forget to sign up for her free e-book.
Samantha White (@livingwastefree) of livingwastefree.com was a recent find of mine, and I just love her zero waste recipes. She also has some rather friendly informative posts. With her comfortable writing style, I’m sure you will be pulled into her posts one right after the other.
Toward Zero Waste (@towardzerowaste) of towardzerowaste.org is what I would call a grassroots movement in northern North Carolina, USA. They are doing what they can to spread the word by guiding as many people as possible toward a zero-waste life while all along still traveling toward it themselves. They started only a couple of years ago or so, but I think they have some great information and if you are in their area you should check them out at one of the events that they hold.
Eco-cycle (@ecocycle_zerowaste) of ecocycle.org is another great movement that is based out of Boulder, Colorado, USA. I admit that their services are geared for those living in the Boulder and surrounding areas, but it does not diminish the information that they share or the ideas that you can glean from them. All of their ideas and works can be adopted by your community. I say it is worth a shot to check them out.
Sustainably Vegan (@sustainably_vegan), aka Immy Lucas, was the first person I had heard talk about zero-waste. She has a soft personality (read as not militant) when it comes to this subject that she holds a great passion for. Her videos are clear and easily understandable. I hope that you find her as inspiring as I did.
Shelbizleee (@shelbizleee), aka Shelbi, is a relatively new find for me but I like what this young lady has to say and how she handles her values. From minimalism to dumpster diving to thrift store shopping, this girl covers a lot. I like her, and I hope you will too.
Now, I know I didn’t post many people under vloggers, but that is because watching and listening to someone is a personal thing. The aesthetics of the camera work and pitch/tone of their voice has to appeal to each person so as to keep them coming back for more. These two ladies, though, are just a starting point. I’m sure you will find more just by being curious.
You will notice that I have posted another recipe, also. That is because Superbowl Sunday is coming quickly, and I wanted to share this fantastic dip with you. If you should make it, please tag me in your photo so I can see how your dip turned out and what you did with it. If you follow me on Instagram, you will recognize the dip. I do hope that you will try it and let me know what you think.
Until next time, my friends.
