Progress, not perfection.
Do you want to make some simple changes to reduce your
waste and live more sustainably but are not too sure where to
start? You may find terms like 'zero-waste' and 'plastic-free' a
bit overwhelming and unachievable... well guess what... so do
We are the Dale family. Mum: Juliet - that's me. Dad: Jon.
Football-mad Brady. Sparkle-mad Eve, and just plain-mad
We are not Green Gurus, or Tree-Huggers. We
don’t wear tie dye and we are not vegan.
BUT, about two years ago, we realised that we couldn’t keep
living the disposable lifestyle that we had; using something
once, throwing it away, wheeling the rubbish bin out to the
curbside once a week and promptly forgetting about it.
SO we started making some changes, just one at a time. We
quickly discovered that not only was it easy, but we were also
really enjoying the challenge, as well as saving money. Most of
all though, the very small changes that we were making were really adding up. Within three months our family had halved the amount of waste that we were producing in our house!
SO we created the Great Eco Journey. Simple eco-tips that are easy, fun, can save you money and most importantly, help you to live more sustainably.
Would your workplace or community group like me to come in and talk to you in person? I LOVE doing presentations and workshops that are tapered to you. Get in touch to find out more! I am also a free-lance writer and content creator and would love to chat about how I can work with you.
Next year we are embarking on an EPIC WASTE-FREE ADVENTURE! Watch this space!
We are all about baby steps, making change work for you, and not beating yourself up because you produce more than a mason-jar full of rubbish. We am passionate about the fact that big things can come from small beginnings.
