Working within the community to lower our garbage consumption around town while planting sustainable living seeds along the way.
Green Goals has been a small community project led by me, Ashley Raza (OCT). I've been on maternity leave for the past year and I wanted to keep myself accountable as a low waste living junkie while sharing what I have learned along the way. What better way to do it than on social media and on an independently created website?
So many people have told me that they couldn't start a low waste journey because it was too expensive to begin. So, I set out to find a way to make it more accessible for people who want to make an individual difference in their daily lives. While most people slowly implement one low waste approach at a time (It costs a lot to get started AND it takes up a lot of time to learn about low waste options), I am creating at least ten kits this year that allow any household to get started with all the most important tools for their kitchens. Sustainable Starter Kits are a collection of resources, and an information brochure that explains how to use each item in your kitchen to reduce the waste you create.
There are so many other ways you live more sustainably. This is just one solution to dealing with society's problem of creating too much waste, and it has helped me take control of my eco anxiety.
In the process of making these kits, I have learned some great tips on how to implement a low waste lifestyle in multiple areas of my lifestyle. Check out the topics tab to see how I have addressed other areas of my lifestyle. If you have any suggestions or even if you have a better way to lower my own waste, please send me a message! I'm a work in progress, like everyone else.
Every business that posts a seal on their door has taken a stand to find ways to limit the amount of garbage they produce at each point of sale they make. From choosing ecologically conscious products to encouraging guests to bring their own pre cleaned container, you can see where the change is being made by these Green Goals businesses.
This year, all proceeds collected from the seals are being used to create sustainable starter kits for households who want to begin a lifestyle of low waste in their kitchens.
