Waste is fast becoming a major environmental threat, and the rubbish we make in our daily lives is a significant contributor to the problem.

Everything we buy is attached to a number of waste streams, and a lot of people are buying more and more stuff each day, but that must stop. It’s time for change, but not everyone knows how to change things in their own lives in ways that make a difference.

Following a zero waste lifestyle creates positive changes in your day to day life that can limit your waste. The big aim of zero waste is to minimise waste by avoiding packaging, but for the majority of people that can feel a smidge impossible! Almost zero waste on the other hand, that sounds almost possible, right?! Don’t worry, we’ve got your back; our coaching services help you through those challenging first steps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let's Rethink Rubbish

The Rethink RubbishTM program was designed to help people change their mindset on waste and transition to low/zero waste living. This transition is a marathon, not a sprint, and over time we’ll make a big bunch of small changes. Going zero waste can feel challenging at first, so Almost Zero coaching services are also available for those who feel like they’d benefit from a bit of mentoring along the way. 

The Rethink Rubbish program will help you to rethink everything you interact with, one room at a time. A welcome side-effect of trying to create less waste is that you will also create less recycling, less clutter, less everything!! There’s never been a better time to start than now! 

Let’s catch up and talk about all things zero waste

The rethink rubbish program has been designed to help you transition towards a more sustainable lifestyle by coaching you through some of the more challenging moments! Everyone’s circumstances are unique, so we tailor our program to suit you.
