Sustainably Vegan recently posted a video about how she is going away from the term zero waste. Instead of using the term zero waste, which only focuses on personal waste, now she is using the term low impact. You can watch her video here.
There are so many other environmental issues to cover and try to improve that go beyond our personal waste. I am so excited to see a movement that is based reducing the overall environmental impact. Also low impact is a lot less intimidating than zero waste.
I am really in support for this movement because not only are they encouraging the reduction of personal waste, but also reducing carbon emissions, waste produced by the production of meat, water way pollution and any other things that have a negative impact on the environment. For me, I have been taking small steps to reduce my environmental impact and now that there is a movement about it I feel like there is more ability to get others to join in and more support for those just starting, those still learning and those still growing.
It is extremely hard to be completely go zero waste and it can be so discouraging when you mess up. When we make mistakes and get upset over those mistakes we are missing the positive impact we are making by even just taking small steps to reduce our impact on the environment. That is what this blog is all about and I am so excited to see there is a community of supporters for this lifestyle.
Every little bit of waste reduction steps you take make a huge difference and we have to remember that. I love Sustainably Vegan's video she posted because it is so encouraging to see people supporting others who are trying to reduce their impact. Check out her instagram here.
