Today is Day Seven of Zero Waste Week here at The Non-Consumer Advocate and I am wiped. Mind you, I’m not tired of making Zero Waste choices, I’m just tired of writing about it!
Today I brewed a cup of loose leaf tea, drove kids to soccer, sat in my car reading library books until the game started and then drove through Burgerville for breakfast burritos on the way home.
Why would I make a drive-through decision?
Because I had a BOGO Chinook Book coupon, as well as a free breakfast burrito that had been added to my Burgerville card after my last visit. So . . . free!
And the packaging?
It was all paper and could be composted. So it was 100% Zero Waste!
If you’re wanting to delve more deeply into Zero Waste, I highly recommend Zero Waste Home as well as the Zero Waste Home book. (Get it from the library for bonus good karma points!) And for those of you with a smart phone, there’s an interactive Bulk Locator App for sourcing zero waste options in your neighborhood!
So now you have no excuses for not working Zero Waste into your life!
