Shop in Gippsland
I often get asked where I shop for bulk food, which places let me use my containers, and where I find plastic free household products so I have put together a Shop In Gippsland page. The page has been arranged alphabetically by township to make finding your local businesses easier and then alphabetically by business name. I will continue to add to this resource as I discover new places and I encourage everyone to share their own discoveries in the comments at the bottom of that page. This way it can become a more comprehensive resource for people all across Gippsland.
If you think it will help you approach businesses about zero waste shopping, here is a flyer you might like to leave with them. It has been sized so you can print three to a page.
Shop beyond Gippsland
The Zero Waste Home Bulk App can be used to add and find package free bulk locations all around the world.
Repair in Gippsland
Being able to repair things helps us reduce waste and thus our impact on the planet. My Repair in Gippsland page lists businesses and organisations able to repair household and personal items. I will continue to add to this resource as I discover new places and I encourage everyone to share their own discoveries in the comments at the bottom of that page. This way it can become a more comprehensive resource for people all across Gippsland.
Reuse in Gippsland
Reuse is different to recycling and is more important when managing our waste. The Reuse in Gippsland page provides a list of orgnaisations and businesses that can reuse commonly discarded items.

In this space I will keep a record of relevant books I have read. Please feel free to share other relevant books you have read.
I will use this space to keep a record of relevant movies I have watched. Please feel free to share other movies you think people will like.
Links for businesses, groups & individuals
My Links for businesses, groups & indivduals page contains a list of organisations I have discovered which might be useful for business managers and community groups looking for ideas and support to reduce waste. Again, I welcome the addition of more organisations in the comments on that page.
