Whether you are already on the path to zero waste, just getting started, or simply want to live greener, this challenge is in easy to digest weekly topics with loads of tips and ideas to get you started.
Most of us live busy lives and we want to live more sustainably, but we don't have time to devote to researching options and making drastic lifestyle changes.

I've called it a War on Waste, because that's exactly what it is - You wont necessarily be zero waste at the end of it but you will have taken key steps that make a BIG difference.
