Having always been aware of the downside of consumerism and modern living, Samina’s zero waste journey kick-started after being introduced to minimalist and natural living whilst travelling and living within different communities around the world. Seeing the benefits of living with less clutter, making things by hand and producing less waste made her eager to learn more. She has since been experimenting with recipes to reduce the amount of toxins in her household, and particularly cherishes the reward of packaging-free cupboards.
Through volunteering at her local ZW group, she has been able to feed her curiosity even more whilst sharing her learnings, and she particularly enjoys the exchange with others about their experiences.
There are still many steps to take to become completely zero waste, but Samina is enjoying the challenge of getting there one small step at a time!
