5 questions for you

let’s get to know each other! add yours answers to mine in the comments section below.

  1. what zero waste efforts do you make in your home that you use on a daily basis (kitchen, bathroom, office, on the go)?
  2. what do you want to improve in your daily life towards zero waste in the next year?
  3. why is zero waste living important to you?
  4. what eco-documentary do you recommend for people to watch?
  5. how often do you eat home cooked food?

These are not questions for judgement. Perfection is not the goal. We all have ways we want to improve, always.

(life is the journey not the destination right?)

What questions do you have?

  1. 1. We have cloth napkins, our coffee making is zero waste. and more but can you tell I’m in my dining room?
    2. I want to try eco-bricks and find other solutions on what to do with the plastics that I do “have to” buy.
    3. zero waste living is important to me because the human race is killing the planet we live on and I aim to make a difference from the consumer side rather than trying to go into politics to make a change from there.
    4. ha, I asked this question about eco-documentaries so that you can tell me what to watch. Up until now I’ve been too scared to watch any!
    5. I cook for Joe and I on Sundays for the whole week, I eat home cooked or whole foods 85-90% of the time.

  2. 1. We’ve stopped using paper napkins, paper plates, coffee filters, zip lock bags, tin foil, parchment paper, plastic wrap and paper towels – switching to all reusable alternatives. We compost and recycle and buy package free with our own bags/jars at bulk bins…
    2. I am interested in eco-bricks too! But I also want to move more and more away from meat and dairy so we can be closer to zero waste.
    3. I want our planet to exist for future generations.
    4. Most impactful for me was The True Cost – more about ethical purchasing, but linked to environmental issues. Also Cowspiracy.
    5. I cook for my family almost every night. We go out to eat three times a month max. Not worth the money for my family of five.
    Great questions! Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future!

    1. Hey! These are great answers, thank you. I’m fascinated how you navigate zero waste living in a larger family- it’s a journey just to get my husband on board sometimes.

      I’ll have to check out those documentaries to continue to educate myself even if it makes me uncomfortable. And I totally agree about eating less meat and dairy! I’ve been a vegetarian for about a year now for this reason, and also avoid dairy except I haven’t broken up with cheese yet… but my husband still eats meat which complicates things. This is definitely something I’ll be talking about more here because cooking is a passion of mine.

      thanks again! I’m glad to have you here! -Jennifer

  3. 1. We use cloth napkins and cloth towels as an alternative to paper. We’ve also switched to a french press instead of a regular coffee maker. I try to make a lot of household staples like cooking spray or laundry detergent.
    2. I really want to compost this year, and I want to focus on purchasing quality second hand clothes that will stand up for years to come.
    3. I see a world choking and drowning in waste – the product of greed and the mindless pursuit of convenience. I want to do my part to change that culture.
    4. The True Cost is very eye opening, and it has forever changed my view of clothing. I don’t know if The Minimalists is strictly considered an eco-documentary, but it certainly inspired a more eco-friendly lifestyle in me.
    5. I love to cook! I make homemade meals almost every day.
