The most effective thing you can do for the environment today with Erin Rhoads
Zero waste campaigner Erin Rhoads from Rogue Ginger once famously put 18 month’s worth of her rubbish into a single glass jar.
But Erin hasn’t always had a low waste lifestyle. In fact she says it used to be “fast food, fast living” kind. She’s shared her journey to reducing her impact on the environment through her blog The Rogue Ginger - one habit, one blog post at a time.
Today Erin’s a sought-after writer and speaker. She was a consultant on ABCs War on Waste, and shares skills and practical help to hundreds at workshops, talks and forums, and founded Zero Waste Victoria and Plastic Bag Free Victoria.
One of the things I love most about Erin is her complete honesty and transparency with the journey that she’s undertaken, and the emphasis on meaningful change. She acknowledges herself that she doesn’t always get it right, but that small steps every day can make an incredible difference over time.
This conversation is an empowering one for anybody who wants to take small steps to make the world a better place.
“What we do locally can have a ripple effect globally.”
