So in 11 days when I move to New Castle, I am going to try living zero waste for one month! This type of one month self-challenge is how I went vegan for five years, and only changed my ways due to health and lifestyle changes. It is also how I got more creative, putting down my phone for most of the day and writing instead. Instead of a trash can, I will have a big mason jar. Instead of throwing away food waste, I will compost. Instead of using aluminum foil, saran wrap, wax paper, and plastics, I will opt for reusable sources such as reusable containers, beeswax wrap, silicone baking mats, and such. I'll let y'all know weekly how I'm doing, and I will be posting it all through my blog because I am trying to spend less time on FB and more time just living life as I continue my education and learn more about homesteading, sustainable agriculture, and the rural communities of our region. Much love to everyone! If anyone wants to join me on this challenge, just send me a message, and I can share the document for my plans and tips on how to compost and recycle, even in a small apartment setting. I hope this challenge can be seen as an offering as to how to mitigate our current ecological, environmental, climate, consumer-culture crisis, and learn from the old ways.
