Resources

Starting to live a zero waste life can be challenging and on occasions can feel overwhelming, but thankfully there are already a lot of people out there already doing it. This means there's a wealth of resources available to help you on your journey. I have included below lots of the resources that I have used or found helpful over the years and I will continue to update these. There are of course many more but I have only referenced once I have experience of using myself.
