Talking a Little Less Trash

Talking a Little Less Trash Follow my family in an effort to lead a zero-waste lifestyle. We will share our journey of trying to reduce our wasteful habits. I set aside my love for spontaneous shopping sprees. Now I have well thought out and executed trips to buy exactly what I set out to get. Impulse buying – gone. I started shrinking our family’s plastic footprint. We got into a relatively “green” groove, and I thought we were doing good… Until I read about the Zero-Waste family. WOW. So I talked to my husband and kids and we decided it’s time to step it up. Because sometimes, less really is more.
