Testimonial from Ashley Jane, Queensland:
“Morning Tammy. I came to your talk on Tuesday night and just wanted to thank you for sharing your insight with us and inspiring and motivating me to work towards a waste free lifestyle. As a result I have started to adopt new little habits and journal about ideas for future lifestyle changes I can be making. I’ve picked up a second hand compost bin and am really excited to get that started. It’s encouraging to see a normal woman with a normal family and household doing extraordinary things that really are achievable by absolutely anyone. That was a big take home message for me. So again, thank you, just wanted you to know I appreciate your talk and look forward to learning many new tips from you in the future.”

Hi Kirsten, glad to hear it! My post called Bring your own Gippsland would be best to start with. I’ve got the link here but otherwise search using the tag ‘bring your own’ or go to the ‘out and about’ category and scroll down. Hopefully talk to you again soon 😄
Hi Tammy, Have just seen the Daily Mail article and saw butter in parchment wrap behind your home made yogurt, then on your web page noticed the article on teflon and silicon baking sheets. I just use the parchment wrap to grease baking containers or as a liner for trays and loaf tins etc. – butter side up. After finishing the butter, just fold and store parchment in the fridge till needed.

Thanks Nola, I did discover this reuse option for the butter paper recently so now I do keep it in the fridge for these uses. It’s one of those things that I can’t believe I didn’t think of earlier! Thanks for the tip👍🏻
My friends and I run a small local retail business. I am wondering if you make and sell or distribute any products to help create a waste free life?

Hi Clare, I will send you an email. Thanks for getting in touch.
I am Gippsland’s Coastcare facilitator with DELWP. Our next edition of our e-magazine, Coastline, due out shortly, is focussing on the issues surrounding marine debris. Just wondering if you would like to contribute an article about how families and households can do their bit by ‘acting locally’ to reduce waste – and plastics in particular. And it would be great to discuss possibilities for future collaboration. Bruce Atkin, Coastcare Victoria

I came across your blog while researching ways to further reduce waste (my New Year’s Resolution!) It inspired me to create a Facebook group for Kiwis to support each other, as I’m in NZ. Just wanted to say thanks for sharing and I am on the lookout to see what options we have here in NZ for contact lenses etc. I’ll be following you from now on!

Thanks Melissa, nice to meet you! Amanda is a zero waste blogger in New Zealand, you might enjoy her blog too. 😊 http://www.wastefreeland.nz
I’d love some ideas on what to line larger garbage bins with – bigger than the kitchen tidy but not wheelie bin size. The size all our rubbish bins used to be pre wheelie bins. Newspapers are great for my kitchen bin but too small these days for this sized bin. I researched online & found bags made from cassava but the minimum order was 5,000!! I’m not sure I or my friends and family would live long enough to use that number!! Thanks Tammy.
Hi Susie, that’s a tricky one. Do you really need a bin liner? Or do you have animal feed bags that could be used for this?
Hi Tammy, Greetings from West Chester, PA USA. We are launching a plastic free campaign in our town and looking for a logo. May we use your turtle for plastic free July, with modifications? We would remove the July and add West Chester. Please let me know if that is ok. Margaret from Don’t Spray Me!

Hi Margaret, the Plastic Free July logo is not mine. You will have to ask Plastic Free July Foundation if you can use and modify it. Cheers Tammy
