Reducing the amount of single use plastics we needlessly throw away is important but also is just one part of our potential waste stream. My guest today is recent Dunedin resident Sarah Sturgess who has taken it further and is currently living happily with almost no waste at all headng to the landfill.
Sarah is passionate about reducing her waste and she does it in ways that add to her life. She defines her zero waste lifestyle as “aiming to send nothing to landfill while being as normal as possible”
But Sarah isn’t a zero waste fundamentalist. One thing I like about her approach to her chosen mode of living is that she can relax and break the rules when she wants to.
Join me as I ask Sarah why she lives a zero waste lifestyle. More importantly, how does she do it? And what tips does she have for those of us who are passionate about reducing the amount of waste that we send to landfill?
