Hi, I'm Megean, who calls the Midwest home, and over the last 2 years have set forth on a journey to become as Zero Waste as possible. What is Zero Waste? My husband and I will be reevaluating our lives so that we send almost no trash to the landfill, as well as, cut out nearly all plastic use. Sounds challenging, doesn't it? At only a year in, we still have yet to put out our garbage can!
I feel that our lives have gotten so disposable. The throw away culture has been ingrained into our every day lives. The average American throws away 4.4 lbs. of garbage a day! We've learned to value things more than experiences and relationships. Well, I've had it! I deserve better, you deserve better, future generations deserve better!
I've started the Zero Waste Nerd blog to show my progress from day 1 and share with you my experiences and tricks! I expect that this transition will make me more connected to my food, strengthen my relationships with my friends and family, as well as improve my quality of life. We can live life without being wasteful and stop contributing to the overall problem that we've created ourselves. We're drowning in our own trash and have let convenience become the most important need in our lives.
I have now started this shop as a way to make sustainable goods more attainable for those who are ready to reduce their waste. Are you ready to start your Zero Waste journey?
