“A-year-of-trash-in-a-jar and the packaging-free grocery store”, interview with Love Zero Waste

Back in February, I had the opportunity to speak with the creators of the Love Zero Waste podcast, Evalina Lundqvist and Malin Leth. We spoke about my experience with the trash jar and my thoughts at the time. The podcast at large covers a variety of topics relevant to zero waste and often interviews experts to better understand issues, so I recommend you listen to any of the episodes, but especially the one I’m on, duh.

The jar has long been a symbol of the movement and has been under scrutiny from the community. My thoughts on the jar have continued to evolve since recording this podcast, even though I am not currently using a trash jar to contain my non-recyclable trash. Zero waste continues to be more nuanced than any jar can contain, but I hope you’ll give this podcast a listen and let me know your thoughts.

Happy zero wasting!
