Being part of the Zero Waste movement, I have only produced 25 grams of non-recyclable waste over the last 6 months, and gone 99% organic,  saving money and time in the process. I created a website to disseminate information that may help people go quicker and profit from my own experience. In addition, I’m living off my passion: music! and all this while living a normal life! So see you Tuesday 13th at my presentation!
