Travelling overseas as a Zero Waster can be a daunting experience if you want to stay true to your values and not take home unnecessary rubbish.  So I was excited and humbled to be asked by Inge Echterholter from the Zero Waste Bloggers Network to be a co-author for the second edition of the Zero Waster’s Traveller Companion.

Today was photo day and we made a family day of it travelling from Nerang to Southport and back, stopping at some regular haunts to take some images to upload to the ebook.

My thanks to all who participated and just know that all that you are doing, even the small things,  is making  a real difference to help individuals leave a lighter footprint on the Planet.

For more info and to download the ebook (first edition, second edition coming soon!), stayed tuned to this page or visit




Nicole from Brumby’s Bakery at Pacific Pines happily fills my home made bread bag with family staples.
Bliss Health and Bulk Foods has a huge selection of produce from bulk bins which you can pack into your own bags or they will weight the containers you are using and you can pack straight into those.
Lifeline at Southport has won Best Op Shop (Thrift Store) on the coast. A great assortment of preloved garments, books, homewares and even vinyl records!
My latest haunt is the new Stellarossa Cafe and Restaurant in Nerang where you can purchase a keep cup and receive a free upgrade or BYO cup and/or straw.
