During the month of September our guest created only a mason jar full of garbage. And it took her six days to make any trash at all.

April Hepokoski, the mind behind the Zero Waste Duluth Facebook page , shares how her journey to sustainability began, what first steps she made in eliminating plastics, and what things we can do in our own lives beyond bringing reusable bags to the grocery store.

She also offers some zero waste insight for the upcoming holiday season. You know, the season full of wrapping paper, ribbon and bubble wrap.
