Liam and Hannah decided to adopt the principles of a zero-waste lifestyle after learning about the massive amount of materials, energy and resources that are wasted as a result of our high-consumption lifestyles and how this impacts our beautiful oceans and eco-systems. They go as far to say that it is a mirror of the mindset that exists within our culture and communities.
So what did they decide to do? Well they got rid of their rubbish bin, quite their jobs and decided to travel around New Zealand sharing and spreading this knowledge and ways in which we can reduce our waste.
This conversation is a lot more insightful and thought provoking that you would expect. We are disempowered and disconnected individuals trying our best to fulfill ourselves through consumerism – the result of this is a LOT of waste. But in the problem lies the solution. A shift back to connection, community, collaboration with ourselves, fellow humans and the environment is what we need. A by-product of this is respect and with respect comes a desire to reduce the impact we are having on the world i.e. zero-waste. And by starting there we can save the world.
We dive deep into the significance and symbolism of zero-waste, we talk practical tips for reducing waste and resources to get you started so I hope you enjoy this inspiring and insightful conversation.
