Three top ways to help you become a Zero Hero
This year, the theme of Zero Waste Week () is ‘One More Thing’, an opportunity to ask ourselves what one thing we could do to cut our waste and make a big difference. So what could you commit to doing for zero waste week? We’ve put together three ideas to help you become a zero hero:
1) Love soup - any veggies looking like they need using are perfect for a big pot of what Streetbank HQ’s Tess calls ‘LOVE’ Soup – aka LeftOver VEggie soup. It couldn’t be simpler.
2) Plastic – it’s everywhere. Shunning plastic bags are a start but we reckon there’s more we can do! Shopping at farmers markets and high street stalls means much less plastic, for example, and the lovely people at Lush (who make creams and soaps and the like) take all their black pots back.
3) Electronic equipment is now the fastest growing waste stream in many countries. If you have gadgets and gizmos lying around that you’re not sure what to do with, check out The Restart Project – a fantastic organisation we rate highly.
And that’s it from us. Sign up to Zero Waste Week to get hints, tips and encouragement throughout the week to help you become a Zero Hero this September!
