Erin Rhoads, aka The Rogue Ginger, has compiled a terrific guide for the waste conscious folks amongst us. And we love it.
Each year Australian households produce enough rubbish to fill a three-bedroom home, including thousands of dollars worth of food and an ever-increasing amount of plastic, which takes hundreds of years to break down and often ends up in our oceans or our food chain. But what to do about such a huge problem? Is it just the price we pay for the conveniences of modern life? What if it were possible to have it both ways – to live a modern life with less waste?
That’s where Erin Rhoads, aka The Rogue Ginger, comes in. Erin went from eating plastic-packaged takeaway while shopping online for fast fashion, to becoming one of Australia’s most popular eco-bloggers. Erin knows that small changes can have a big impact.
In Waste Not she shares everything she’s learnt from her own funny, inspiring – and far-from-perfect – journey to living with less waste. Learn how to: ·switch out the disposable plastics from your shopping trolley ·make simple cleaning solutions free from harmful chemicals ·find your favourite beauty products without all the packaging ·give a baby shower present that won’t end up in the charity shop bag ·plan your own zero-waste wedding (and what ‘zero waste’ even means!).
