A beautiful share from Zero Waste Family Mama, Fredrika, as she speaks with @locallywell on their podcast #wellnessinsandiego 💜

We love Fredrika because she keeps it real and is such a loving and authentic woman! She loves her husband @the.zero.waste.dad and her 3 children very much!

Zero waste living started as small individual steps and quickly became a full functioning lifestyle!

You can do it too! Choose one item in your home that you are getting low on, and think about how you can replace it with a more sustainable solution… Head to your local refill store, use glass bottles that are easy to refill, get a reusable water bottle… And so much more!!

So you think because you live in the city, you can't garden?
Think again!
Watch last week's YouTube video about how to grow your own food in the city.
