About

Hello!

ME 3My name is Samantha White, and I created this blog to make reducing your daily waste simple. Here I define waste as any item that can’t be reused, recycled or composted and is therefore sent to the landfill. This means that I aspire to create no trash at all. To accomplish this I have reduced my consumption, I refuse unnecessary items, I recycle everything that I can, I compost what can’t be recycled, and I reuse what’s left. I’ve also quit using plastic, and instead opt for more sustainable alternatives whenever possible.

I’m originally from a small town in South Dakota, and I wanted a way to bring awareness to how hard it can be to go waste free in the Midwestern United States.  As rural areas become more connected with the rest of the world, it seems they have also become disconnected from the nature that they are rooted in.  Through the internet I hope to share my story of changing how I look at waste in a community where disposable is the normal and change is treated as the enemy of economical success. It isn’t always easy, but it is always important.

Currently I am living in New Hampshire where I’m continuing my zero waste journey.

  1. Hi ! I don’t know if this is the right place to reach you but I was looking for someone who would be willing to travel with me for a few days and show me all the nice places in beautiful wine region of Margareth River in Western Australia. I’m from Canada and I want to relocate permanently and build a house in Bunker Bay WA but I don’t know anyone there and quite frankly I am overwhelmed with all the changes that are coming for me quite soon. Anyway, it would be really nice if you knew someone that you trust who can show me around or just to discover new places with for july of this year. I mostly need someone who speaks fluent english because it’s not my case (I’m from Québec, Montréal so I mainly speak french), it would make things WAY easier for me, plus I’m not a very….let’s say…a handy person when it comes to traveling to a foreing land.This would be essentially a job and it will be paid quite generously.I love your channel and I feel you can refer me to someone who you can trust and therefor that I can trust with a high degree of confidence ! 🙂

    Thank you so much in advance ! 🙂
