The Rubbish Diet

Karen Cannard tells us about her website and a great idea for a Zero Waste Week.

“It’s called The Rubbish Diet and started out to record my progress at attempting a Zero Waste Week. The challenge was successful in that all I threw out was a plaster and since then my family’s household waste is still on about a carrier bag’s worth each month.

I now use the blog to profile positive stories about what other people are doing. I have also helped others reduce their waste by 50%. One family whom I am mentoring is attempting their own Zero Waste Week in September.

The Rubbish Diet and feedback from readers is all about positive encouragement, highlighting what can be done in a positive way. Where frustrations exist, these are presented with humour.

I hope it is of interest. It can be found at
