Welcome Kit

I have put together a Welcome Kit you can download, for FREE, by entering your email below. This will also sign you up for my newsletter. Don’t worry, I won’t spam you. I’ll email out new blog posts I think you would find interesting, and possibly any awesome waste-reducing products I find on sale.

Ok, now that you’ve downloaded your Welcome Kit, it’s time to work through it. The kit will have all the information you need to help identify the opportunities for improvement in your kitchen.

Some of the worksheets can be done quickly. While others, such as the Trash Audit, take some time to work through. 

No matter how you do it, whether in small chunks or all at once, this is where you should start. 

If you don’t know the problem, how can you search for a solution?

Just remember, even the smallest pebble can create a huge ripple effect. Every choice you make, every tiny victory, can help make the Earth a cleaner place and only helps the health of you and your family.
