Waste Not - Erin Rhoads
Make a big difference by throwing away less.
Is it possible to live a modern life with less waste?
Shrink wrapped veggies, disposable coffee cups, clothes and electronics designed to be upgraded every year: we are surrounded by stuff that we often use once and then throw away.
Each year Australian households produce enough rubbish to fill a three bedroom home, including thousands of dollars worth of food and an ever increasing amount of plastic, which can take hundreds of years to break down and often ends up in our oceans and our food chain.
But what to do about such a huge problem? That's where Erin Rhoads comes in, aka The Rouge Ginger.Erin went from eating plastic packaged takeaway while shopping online for fast fashion, to becoming one of Australia's most popular eco-bloggers. Erin knows that small changes can have a big impact. In Waste Not she shares everything she's learnt from her own funny, inspiring - and far-from-perfect - journey to living with less waste.
