(SPEECH)
I always considered myself an environmentalist. Thought I was doing my part by being a good recycler. I was brought up to do that, you know, separate your recycling, be diligent about it.
[ Music ]
I got together with a couple of my mom friends who each had three kids as well. They kind of introduced me to this idea of zero waste and it really made me look at my actual trash I was producing and not just the typical things that you hear of like, oh, don’t drive as many places or turn off lights or recycle. Zero waste movement really pushes looking at the actual trash you produce and things that you consume.

Views of food in bins at the market. On screen text. The average lifespan of a plastic bag is 12 minutes and takes over 1,000 years to degrade to micro-plastics in a landfill.

(SPEECH)
Food does not compost in a landfill. So food also becomes petrified in a landfill and instead of breaking down like it would in your compost pile, it essentially just sits there.

(DESCRIPTION)
My Waste. Waste Audit. 1. Change nothing. 2. After one week, weigh your waste in every area of your home, including recycling bins. 3. Research local recycling laws. 4. Identify where you can make swaps. 5. Make one small change. 6. Make another small change. 7. Repeat.

I did a waste audit at my home and I went through all of my trash and all my recycling. Really taught me where I was creating waste and where my family was creating waste.

Pick one or two things. Try to put a zero waste swap in there. So for my paper towels I started using just a cut up t-shirt. I just took a few old t-shirts, cut them up, they’re my reusable rags, and I completely eliminated my use of paper towels.

(DESCRIPTION)
One third of the landfills in the world are filled with packaging materials that could have been recycled. Only seven percent of plastics end up being recycled.

(SPEECH)
What I thought I was recycling was actually becoming trash and not only becoming trash, it was becoming someone else’s trash for someone else to deal with. But I wanted to be responsible and I wanted my community to be responsible and I wanted to try to change the mindset so that instead of 91% of those plastics being shipped off, we weren’t even creating those plastics anymore and that we’re using materials that were better for the environment and better for the consumer.
We are often told that the environment is declining in its health and in order for humans to continue to live prosperously in this planet we need to change our behavior but a lot of people don’t want to change their behavior drastically.
