Would you like to meet like-minded people? This is a supportive group for anyone who is in their journey to sustainable lifestyle, approximating zero-waste - eliminating use of single-use plastics, and generally, all disposables.
Everybody at different stages of this process is welcome. We will encourage & learn from each other - no judgements, just pure love!
Minimizing our household waste is good both for our wallet and for the planet. The process can help us reflect on our values and consumption patterns. Buy less, make, mend and fix and have fun in the process - - and enjoy life more!
