Zero Waste Is A Mindset Not A Reality!
When you research zero waste you see people who have curated a trash free life that seems glorious and perfect. Especially since they are able to fit months and years worth of trash into a small mason jar. What?! So when you started your zero waste journey you probably realized very quickly, that it is super difficult/ impossible to fit that perfect glorious zero waste mold. This has left you stressed, frustrated, and disappointed that you must be doing something wrong. You may have gotten into some arguments with family, friends, roommates, partners, etc. Am I right? This story isn’t new. I see it everyday on facebook and other social media platforms.
I also started my zero waste journey the same way. I got super frustrated at myself and the people in my life that I thought were inhibiting me from living this “glorious and perfect” zero waste life. It took me months to realize that the majority of zero wasters don’t live this perfect trash free life because it is impossible. Just because I can’t go to a farmers market all year round doesn’t mean that I can’t be zero waste. It took months for me to realize that there is more to living a zero waste, compassionate, and conscious life without having a trash jar.
