I am Timi Nicholson, a zero waste speaker and environmental activist, I am passionate about sustainable living. Here at Simple No Waste Life, launched in 2017, my aim is to share my experience and expertise in order to help you reduce waste.

I have given talks in several different forums, from small NGOs to multinational corporations, through baby fairs to law firms. Recently I was invited to speak as a guest lecturer in Technical University Dublin, formerly know as DIT.

We, as a family were featured in major publications, such as the Irish Times, the Irish Examiner and Greennews.ie, in addition to appearing on Eco Eye, Ireland’s longest running environmental programme.

My educational background is in Economics and I hold a Masters in Regional Development. From September 2019 I will start in Dublin City University, undertaking a Masters in Climate Change.

Currently I volunteer for the Cloth Nappy Library Ireland to promote the use of reusable nappies and to support parents who are already using cloth nappies.

Previously I was involved in the Conscious Cup Campaign and the Zero Waste Festival Ireland



Our story

We started our ‘zero waste’ journey after our son, Max was born. We were astonished by the amount of disposable nappies we had to throw away every day. Soon after transitioning to cloth nappies, we got rid of all disposable products in our house, and 9 months down the line, we were able to completely unsubscribe from bin services to our home. Changing habits can be difficult, but soon we got used to our new way of living and worked hard to make these changes were sustainable. We do not aspire to be perfect but believe that every small drop makes a difference.
