ZeroWaste Tips from a busy mum-of-two in Japan on how to permanently eliminate everyday plastic objects from your life.
ZeroWaste living, Japan-style
ZeroWaste.Japan was started by Mum-of-two, Ran, after reading Bea Johnson’s seminal masterpiece Zero Waste Home (now translated into 25 languages).
“I started my ZeroWaste journey in Japan.” Says Ran on her website. “It literally changed my life. I’ve started the process of switching to many of the suggestions from the book to reduce waste.”
Sadly, there are no bulk shops & farmers’ markets around Ran, and people aren’t concerned about single use plastics. However, she is trying to produce as little trash as possible.
“I hope to live a zero waste lifestyle locally by being environmentally conscious about the waste we produce, and raise awareness on how we can make simple changes to reduce waste.”
Regards sharing her experiences, Rans says “I hope it will help you on your zero waste journey. We can all do something to make the world a little greener.”
Below there is a selection of 21 of Ran’s Japan-style ZeroWaste living tips and hacks. Ran shares her Japanese style Zerowaste journey on Instagram. Learn more about the ZeroWaste Japan Travel Guide. You can also find loads more photos and Zero Waste tips on Facebook.
