Impacting positively on planet
WELCOME to a new column where we share zero waste practices and small steps to incorporate into daily life to make a positive impact on the planet.
Like you, we are busy with life, family, work and beyond. We believe there is an urgency for humanity to get moving with velocity, to preserve and protect the natural world.
Here’s our story:
One day Karen searched up soapberries
in the Whitsundays. Up came Lucy’s page
The Crafty Weasel.
Karen contacted Lucy and purchased her
zero waste non toxic dishwasher tabs.
met for the drop off.
Karen shared her vision for the Whitsundays
to be the first zero waste town in
Australia. Lucy said “let’s go”.
We started to create a Zero Waste community
to share resources.
Our motto is:
And here we are, inspired to learn there
are very many of us in our community with
the same desire, wanting to do our part and
willing to discover how.
Each week, we will share simple ideas.
From taking your own reusable shopping
bags, to going all in for Plastic Free July,
there is so much scope to increase our
awareness and take practical daily actions.
We understand that for many of us, those
actions need to be easy.
As a community we
have a tremendous amount of potential to
shift the needle in measurable ways.
We would love to hear about your zero
waste interest or journey.
