Getting Into a Zero Waste Lifestyle

Fresh off of ‘Plastic Free July’ and an Instagram feed full of images and videos of our non-compostable waste destroying the planet, this summer I set out to change some of my Mass Consumer Lifestyle habits for the better.  The evidence was simply too heartbreaking – the videos of waves of trash landing ashore in the Domincan Republic, the little seahorse with the Q-tip on his tail, turtles stuck in plastic nets – these sights are burned into my brain and make me think twice about adding to this crisis with my own unnecessary waste. There are times in our hectic lives when plastic use is inevitable, but surely, we can all make some simple lifestyle changes to do our part to preserve planet Earth.
