an unusable or unwanted substance
Have you ever thought about the things you throw away, your carbon footprint, or how many possessions you have? Do you take the time to look at who makes the products you buy and the impact it has on the environment?
This year, I am. I am on a quest to discover why the world is filled with what we call waste while trying to reduce my own waste. I am going to delve into companies, research world issues, and take you through my day to day life. Forming a zero waste lifestyle is no small feat, but if I don’t do it, why should others?
My name is Abbey and I am a 23 year old, married, environmental enthusiast. My husband and I are striving to live life simply and travel the world. We put value in people instead of possessions and are always looking for the next opportunity. I am studying sustainable management and am ever so intrigued with waste management, our food system, and how to experience the world.
