Life without plastic - Can sustainable living enrich your life?
Lindsay Miles talks about minimal environmental impact for maximum life impact.
Lindsay Miles is the author of the plastic-free, zero waste, minimalism and sustainable living blog Treading My Own Path. In 2012 she took part in a month long plastic-free living challenge called Plastic Free July, and decided to make plastic-free living, and zero waste living, her way of life.
Plastic Free July opened her eyes to the idea that as individuals, we have the power to make a difference with the choices that we make every day. These individual actions, when repeated by thousands of people, have the potential to bring about real, lasting change.
Lindsay put her energy and passion into inspiring others to make small changes in their lives, believing that empowering individuals is what builds movements. Now a Writer, Facilitator and Sustainability Educator, Lindsay shares her journey through her blog, books and community talks. She runs sustainable living workshops, presents to businesses, and offers consultancy services to organisations looking to reduce their waste impact. She organised the Less is More Festival in 2013 and 2014, and is a passionate advocate for the Plastic Free July campaign.
