This week, I'd like to attempt to join in a little with Rachelle Strauss's big National Zero Waste week. Rachelle has an invaluable website dedicated to providing the information and motivation we all need to get us reducing our waste. The theme of this year's zero waste week is 'one more thing' - aiming to encourage us to look at one more thing we could each be doing to reduce our landfill contributions.
For many of us, this is a big week for other reasons. It's 'back to school' week for families across the land, but for us it's 'starting Kindergarten' and 'back to home' week so my emotions and anxiety levels are running a little high. Joining in with Rachelle's mission may provide us with just the focus we need.
If all goes according to plan, and it rarely does, I'll be talking mending, thrifting, compost bin making and some other related bits thrown in throughout the week. In the mean-time, have a look at the place where it's all happening:
