I’m a waste fanatic. It means that when I’m not blogging or podcasting or doing behind the scenes website stuff for wasteAM, I spend a lot of time trying to find new waste-related blogs. I also spend a lot of time thinking about waste issues and noticing stuff that makes me think of reduce and reuse etc. A lot happens in a week that I couldn’t possibly manage to post about. Sometimes I’ll discover a new blog, or learn something technical that I didn’t know before.
In this post I want to share with you the best stuff I’ve discovered lately. If you’ve discovered a new blog or learnt something cool about waste, reduce and reuse, recycle, plastic waste, or energy you can share it in the comment section (please include a brief summary) for other WasteAM readers to check out.
Bamboo Straws – I hate disposable products and feel bad whenever a plastic straw is used on my behalf. This week I tried out a bamboo straw at The Nightjar. Unfortunately their bamboo straws are single use but I kept mine for ongoing reuse. (As long as the straws get reused) a bamboo straw seems to be the perfect biodegradable alternative for plastic-free cocktail fans! Actually, not perfect as it comes all the way from Indonesia…
My Zero Waste – I revisited old haunts to check out if Mrs G is back from her blogging holiday. I hope she’s coming back soon; can’t wait for more zero waste, reduce and reuse, and recycling advice and tips.
Reduce Footprints - I discovered this blog / green campaign which is all about collective actions to make your life and the world more green. It’s great for bloggers as the site will feature your blog (and drive traffic to it) if you take part in the action and blog about it. This weeks challenge is ‘Take a Walk and Pick up Litter’. I wouldn’t get to have much of a walk if I did that in my neighbourhood, but I look forward to taking part and blogging about one of their future waste-related challenges.
Plastic Free Kaluia - I connected with Plastic Free Kaluia on Google + which is a campaign against single use plastics. Their aim is to promote the human and environmental health benefits of going plastic free. It’s a visual and practical campaign I support wholeheartedly. I wonder.. Is there a UK equivalent?
