In this episode I'm SO excited to be chatting to Anne Marie Bonneau, aka the Zero Waste Chef.
Anne Marie shares the story of how she got started on her Zero Waste journey, and her top tips for cutting out single use plastic.

In this episode we look at what Sustainable Living even means, and how to get started when it might be feeling really overwhelming.
Before we start – a little heads up about the background noise on this one – Sara works in an incredibly hip co-working space surrounded by trendy millenials and moustache wax, who can be heard getting themselves a skinnydoubleshotdecaffavocado latte in the background..!
Sara Venn is one of the first people I thought of when I first had the idea for this podcast.
She is an absolute inspiration who founded Incredible Edible Bristol and transformed not just unloved spaces around the city, but people’s lives too.
In this episode, I share why I think it’s so important for us all to get really clear on WHY it’s so important to us that we make sustainable changes in our lives.
It may well be something you’ve never really thought about, but if you can spend a few minutes giving your ‘why’ some thought, it can be a really powerful motivator to keep you taking those all important steps forwards on your sustainable living journey.
Tool libraries are a brilliantly simple concept, and are a pretty popular thing over in North America, but up until a couple of years ago, we didn’t have even one here in the UK.
All that changed in 2015 when Chris Hellawell started up The Edinburgh Tool Library. It’s an inspirational story of one man with a vision, who is creating huge positive change in his community and showing the Sharing Economy is about far more than simply ‘stuff’.
Yes, that’s right, a podcast!
I’m SO excited to get this out there – it feels like this podcast been a long time coming, and I can’t wait to get on some of my sustainable living heroes as guests, and to chat with you each week about all things sustainable living and hopefully inspire and motivate you to think about the small changes YOU could make that would make a big difference.
Hear more about my ‘sustainability journey’ – what got me started, and how I ended up here, in this inaugural episode of A Sustainable Life!
