Trying to live a zero waste lifestyle can be hard at times. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a world that helps or encourages us to lead this type of life. Zero waste is bad for business.
If you are starting to feel overwhelmed then I’d highly recommend stepping back for a bit and just reassess what it is you are trying to achieve. I’ve found it beneficial to concentrate on one area of our home at a time. Slowly work on that and once you’re happy with it move on to the next.
Personally, I started with our bathroom and concentrated on reducing the amount of waste we produced there. It took over a year to finally get to the point where I was happy with it. The best moment was when I got rid of all our bathroom bins because we no longer needed them. Small wins!
When I have moments of feeling overwhelmed I find the best thing I can do is to get inspired again by reading blogs on zero waste, starting a new book or watching an inspirational video.
Today I’ve put together 9 of the best Ted Talks on zero waste for you. Hopefully, they will inspire you with your journey of reducing your waste.
It’s not about perfection, it’s about making better choices
