Today we're talking about zero waste, closed loop systems, how to minimize our waste through reusable items and ditching plastic as much as possible!
Our last day!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking part in this challenge. I'm in awe, truly. The conscious humans that have come together around this challenge - MIND BLOWN. That's all I can say about that.
Today's topic is all about closed loop systems and zero waste concepts. Minimizing garbage and recycling. Helping with the landfill crisis. Reusable items. Everything disposable/plastic has a reusable alternative... that you likely only have to buy once and never again.
Please take get your earbuds, make your morning tea or breakfast and listen to the information.
In my video above, I mention the video that I made a couple of years back with all of my zero waste tips at the time:
I also want to share this video that Julia and I shot yesterday, on Day 4, we share about how Julia is giving away 100 trees this weekend, our Community Clean Up, and how to shop Zero Waste Style 🙂
You can also head to Facebook and say Hi to us there 🙂
And now, in this last day of our challenge, I want to hear from YOU!
