Zero Waste Living

Confessions of a Zero Waste Mama | Post for #ZeroWasteStoryTime – an Online Magazine

Being ‘zero waste’, or following a zero waste journey does not have to mean all or nothing. The term ‘zero waste’ in itself sounds pretty overwhelming. But if a zero waste lifestyle sounds like a good fit for you and your family, even the smallest steps can make a big difference.

My family and I have been on our zero waste journey for almost a year, and we are nowhere near “perfect” (what does that even mean?). Do I still consider myself part of the zero waste movement? Yes.

For the June issue of the online magazine #ZeroWasteStoryTime from the blog Zeroing In, I, a zero waste blogger, share my biggest zero waste confessions to show you that being zero waste doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

I read your article and I totally agree! Cloth diapers weren’t in the cards for us either and I also have a potty training 2.5-year-old and I don’t think we could handle cloth right now. We haven’t started a zero waste journey yet, but it is something I have been looking at, just never knew where to start and then got completely overwhelmed thinking about it! Thanks for sharing! This definitely helps me know that even using a reusable straw instead of plastic is a step in the right direction.

I read your article and have to say thank you for being so transparent about your zero waste living. I think we all have to be a little more realistic about our expectations about living an eco-friendly or healthier lifestyle. We’re humans and we’re far from perfect, so whatever we choose to do will be imperfect as well. But that’s okay! Any step in the right direction is an absolute positive. Thanks so much for sharing this, Laura! Such great insight.
