Think again.

Hi, I’m Carlyn. I started my zero waste journey in early 2017, and by September of that year I took the plunge and committed fully to living with a lighter footprint on the planet. With my shoestring budget, job, a masters degree to complete, and the resources available in a rural upstate New York college town, I made it work.

Let’s look to what we already have, buy differently, and change the way we think. Zero waste is within our reach.
