What a busy month

August was a crazy busy month. Really. A few people from the Zero Waste Ireland Facebook Group got together and we organised some events for the upcoming Zero Waste Week.

You can check out the events listing here

There are going to be informative talks, film screening and to kick the whole week off we will start with a coffee morning.

It is going to be fun!

We purchased a very nice, stainless steel bokashi bin and started to put things in it. This meant, that we could now unsubscribe from the waste collection services (another bill down!!)

If you want to know more about bokashi bins and how to reduce food waste check out Stop Food Waste Website. It is full of great information.

One more on the food waste front Olio was launched in Ireland too and now people can share their surplus food through the Olio app. I will be back with more info on this, but in the meantime you could download the app and see how it works.

As it is the last day of the month, I have weighed our landfill waste and I have to say I am grinning from ear to ear. It is a new record of 133g!!

I did not do a detailed photo this time, but the content is about the same: stickers, receipts, plastic windows, plastic bits of pre-zw purchases and other non recycleable plastic bit or currents purchases.

So this is us this month, I hope next month I will have more time for blogging.

Thanks for dropping by and if you get a chance please share our Zero Waste Week events. I hope to see some of you there.
