Kira Simpson

For those not in the know, zero waste living is about not producing an unnecessary waste.

The “rules” include being able to compost and recycle but you cannot send anything to landfill.

Our day to day activities, shopping, eating, buying stuff, produces an eye watering amount of waste, most of which ends up in landfill.

The plastic waste accounts for a staggering 1.3 million tons in Australia alone.

Somethings gotta give. 

If the thought of tackling a zero waste lifestyle is a little daunting but it doesn’t have to be!

I’ve enlisted the help of zero waste living expert Anita Vandyke, who also happens to be a former rocket scientist, current med student. A very busy lady!

Anita shared with us her super easy to implement tips on how to reduce your waste.
