Hello -- and happy Earth Day! And, welcome to ZERO WASTEISH, a new blog about attempting a zero-waste lifestyle. I know, I know. You're probably thinking "another zero waste blog, really?" Yes, really. :-) But, I get it -- there are many amazing humans who blog about a zero-waste lifestyle and they do it way better than I do (or, maybe ever wil). So, why?
Well, writing is my passion and outlet, so that's why on the blog part. Maybe you're still wondering why zero waste, though? And, what gives me the authority to write about such things? If you’re a friend of mine or a reader of my first blog, trajectoryoflife.com, you’ve likely heard me mention that my fiance and I are trying to be more minimalistic + less waste-producing humans. We've done some good stuff that has gotten us closer to where we want to be. But, we also have a long way to go.
I'm hoping this blog provides a bit of accountability, a lot of idea sharing and perhaps even some inspiration for others to maybe take steps toward a less wasteful life. I've been inspired by and learned so much from others on this journey. This blog is my way to pay that forward while I document my experience. And, if you haven't guessed by the blog name, my goal is progress over perfection because I'm definitely still learning and trying and some days are certainly better than others (full disclosure: I just placed my first Trunk Club order right before writing this post).
And, finally, consider this my friends and family release because I'm really nowhere near being ready for this blog to actually be public and out in the world. However, I've had it on my to-do list for months and I figured there was no better day than Earth Day to launch -- and no better time than now. Welcome to my ZERO WASTEISH journey.
