Consuming Less and Zero Waste

Zero-Waste Organic Mom

What does zero waste mean?

A zero waste family means living a life of voluntary simplicity, refusing what you do not need such as junk mail, freebies, things like that that are given to you on a daily basis. Reducing the things that you do need such as furnishings and clothing. Then it's reusing by shopping with reusables and swapping disposables for reusables and it's about recycling what you can, what you cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse. And rotting, that is composting, the rest. And it's about shifting your life from a life of stuff to a life of experiences.
