“Be a global citizen. Act with passion and compassion. Help us make this world safer and more sustainable today and for the generations that will follow us. That is our moral responsibility.”
- Ban-Ki Moon
The ideology prefacing the current sustainable market transition from single use products to biodegradable and responsibly sourced, ethical materials has opened up a wonderful world of opportunities.
The possibilities are endless! Such small adjustments within your daily routine, will not only positively attribute to the environment, but will positively impact resource efficiency and carbon footprint.
Join me along for this adventure, as we tackle topics weekly such as; single use plastics, toxic ingredients within everyday household products, and most importantly - marketing ploys used by brands to manipulate us as consumers.
Each week I will be providing an update on Australia's movement toward a more sustainable future.
I will be providing you with tips and tricks to make the move yourself! whether it be making simple swaps within your lifestyle and home or even alternating between sustainable products and the products you already have until you are prepared to make the switch completely.
Even the smallest of changes around your home and in your daily practices can have the biggest impacts on our environment.
It has taken me 2 years to make the switch to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. And I did it without breaking the bank. You can too!

Today's hot tips!
If it's yellow, let it mell.... Just kidding! I want to provide you with practical family friendly tips!
Single use cleaning products? Change it!
Do you use Windex, Ajax, White King, etc.? Did you know that these all contain harmful toxins that can adversely affect your health, like bleach, ammonia and chlorine?
There are heaps of Australia companies that offer alternative cleaning product made from natural ingredients. AND they actually work!! I personally use Zero Co.
All of their products are made from recycle plastic collected from landfill and our oceans. They also provide an excellent ordering system;
1. your buy the product in the pouch (made from recycle plastic) and they provide a "forever bottle" (also made from recycle plastic)
2. they provide a postage-paid return satchel
3. once your pouch is empty, you send it back to Zero Co; where it is cleaned and reused for the next order! How cool is that?
I personally use both their cleaning products and their body products. Everything is made here in Australia, it is single use plastic free, it is grey water and septic tank safe, vegan, animal cruelty free and made with plant-based formulas!
There personal-care and home cleaning products are delivered directly to your door and can be ordered on repeat with their automatic ordering system, so you will never have to worry about running out.
Not only are their products good for the environment and good for your health, but they are also inexpensive! It's a no brainer. Let's make the switch to a waste free 23' today.
