KATE’S JOURNEY TO ZERO WASTE: THE SUBURBS CAN BE ZERO WASTE TOO

The Suburbs Can Be Zero Waste Too

A couple of years ago, my family decided to make the move from our charming 1920s Dutch Colonial in Minneapolis to the suburbs almost 30 minutes outside the city.

WHY WE THINK ZERO WASTE CAN WORK FOR YOU

We believe sustainable living is for everyone. Busy people. Broke people. People with kids. Even people with mismatched mason jars. (The horror!) Read more at www.zeroish.org

We are so glad you are here and interested in joining us on the path to a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle. We started this site to help encourage people and families to begin (or continue) to make smarter choices when it comes to our carbon footprint and lifestyle, and their effects on our environment.

We are three moms from Minnesota, who independently began our journeys toward zero waste living in our own ways.  But what we have in common, is that we all care deeply for the environment and want to do our part to create a better planet for ourselves and future generations.  We have seen the detrimental effects that our convenience-based, hyper-consuming, excessively wasteful culture has had on our planet and our health, even in our short lifetimes.  We recognize that something needs to be done to minimize the environmental damage and change the way people live, and that each one of us can do our part, in our own ways.
