Start Small - Zero Waste Home

Updated: Jan 17, 2019



Being a full time parent means that a lot of my time is focused on our children, and very little time is spent focusing on myself; who I would like to be and what I would like to be doing aside from being 'mummy'!


Last year I got myself thinking, what would I like to be doing if I didn't have kids, I love being a mum and that will never change but I wanted something for myself. I personally think this is an important question to think and ask yourself. I realised I really don't like plastic and clutter, and I would like to create a more peaceful and minimalistic home and lifestyle, luckily as a family who always need more and more space to grow we don't hold onto unnecessary stuff. I really love the idea of being able to create a life full of simple things, living slowly, mindfully and consciously. A clear and tidy living space is I believe healthy for the mind. So there, I have set myself the challenges and goals for the years to come and really and truly I feel excited to be living like thf you want to look after the planet a bit more then it shouldn't be seen as a 'hippie' thing to do, it should just be accepted as the right thing to do!


So I looked on Instagram and Pinterest for ideas, made a board and looked around our home to see where I could start!

I think it will be more helpful to make a few lists, yay! (I have been named the queen of lists by my fiance!)


These are the things we have managed to sort out last year, and I can tell you I loved it so much, I will never look back!

I found that the less I surround myself with plastic, and unnecessary "stuff" the happier I have felt!

I get the feeling that a lot of people are scared of changing their lifestyle but if you make just a few small changes at a time I believe it wont be so daunting and you definitely don't have to do it overnight! I want to talk about all of our zero or low waste swaps, as I would love to help and inspire others too! If I don't then I really hope there will be someone else out there who does!
