Starter kits for plastic free and zero waste living

Life on the blog has been little quite of late. Behind the scenes has been the opposite.

Weekly I receive emails, Facebook messages and Instagram comments asking how to get started with plastic free living or going zero waste. I am more than happy to answer any questions as I was in a similar mindset not so long ago. After almost two years living plastic free I can see there are items that would help to make the transition easier. Items that can be reused and ultimately will become a feature of a plastic free or zero waste persons life long term.

So while this blog has laid a little dormant I have been working on a project called...

Starter kits for plastic free and zero waste living

I am working with my sister to put together starter kits for those wanting to go plastic free and/or zero waste. The kits will contain items that I wish I had from the beginning; cloth produce bags, cutlery wrap (knife, fork, spoon, chop sticks and a straw), a reusable cup and a reusable takeaway container.

Right now I am only planning to sell the kits within Australia around the end of the June.

I'd love to know what you think of the kit. Are there any other items you would like?

  1. What a great idea, Erin! I'm excited to see what you come up with. The reusable items I use the most are mesh bags for bulk items in my grocery store and (females only) reusable feminine pads.

    Bummer to being in the US!

    1. Produce bags look like they are popular item. I am only doing a small run and if all goes well then I will ship worldwide. Thanks for the support :)

  2. These are a fabulous idea and a great initiative. I've linked to your post on my blog today.

    What about including a tiny container for soy sauce or tomato sauce so when you buy your pie or sushi you don't have to buy sachets of condiments.

  4. Hi Erin,

    what a great initiative! If you go over to Zero Waste Home and click on the 'store' button at the top this could give you some more ideas of what you might include.

    Good Luck!

  6. That's wonderful idea, Erin! Right now there are a lot of people going zero waste and that starter kit will make the movement really smooth and enjoyable! To be honest, I've heard about it two weeks ago during the Zero Waste Week and since then I'm doing my best to reuse and recycle my own stuff in such a way that I'll reduce my footprint on the planet.
