Hello! Thanks for visiting Zero Waste Hamilton and wanting to learn more about zero waste living. Of course, you can see that this blog has not been updated! As they say, life happens. There was a pandemic that sort of... stopped everything in its tracks. That's ok! We will be back eventually. For now, I recommend keeping up with us on Instagram @zerowastehamilton. See you there!
We are so excited to bring you our new website. Zero Waste Hamilton started as a personal project to reduce my waste. It quickly morphed into something so much more. Along the way, we've gained so much insight from fellow zero-wasters, we've heard from so many community members, and we've inspired businesses to reduce their waste.
The decision to refocus our waste reduction project on the Hamilton community came from an overwhelming sense that the world is too big. Almost a year later, we are so grateful for our decision. We are no longer discouraged on a daily basis, but inspired. Zero Waste Hamilton's reach and community grows every day. We have received countless messages from the Hamilton community and we remain excited and hopeful.
The goal of this website is the same as our Instagram, to be a resource for Hamiltonians to reduce their waste and share their knowledge. This is just the beginning.
To everyone who has supported my passions: thank you.
In October 2018, I was feeling increasingly helpless about the climate crisis. Shortly after, Zero Waste Hamilton was born.
