Why we are here
Zero Green came about for two reasons; firstly, we were both becoming frustrated about how much packaging there is on everyday items and our understanding of how much damage plastic, and specifically single use plastic, was doing to our planet. Secondly, we realised that if we wanted to see something done about it we would have to do it ourselves!
We both come from a retail background, and when we worked together we used our lunch breaks to discuss TED talks we had watched, articles we had read, and You Tube videos we had seen, and we soon realised there are thousands of people out there who want to start working towards a zero waste lifestyle. That means different things to different people; for some it’s all or nothing and getting all of their rubbish for a year into a jam jar, and for others it’s finding a way of doing their weekly shop without filling up their bins and recycling.
