Zero Waste Life : Once you start, you can’t stop “Local Food Cycling”

I started a composting at home in February of this year. For about 3 and a half months, I kept throwing food scraps into the same bag, followed by a three-week maturation period, and now I have nutrient-rich compost! And I sowed three kinds of seeds: 1) radish, 2) arugula, and 3) mini bok choy.

Zero Waste Life : Impressions of 2 Months Composting at Home

Two months have passed in the blink of an eye since I started our first composting at home. Normally, two months is the food scraps-in period, followed by a three-week ripening period to complete the composting process, but since we live in two locations, we only generate food scraps on an average of four days a week in Tokyo. So I decided to continue throwing in garbage for a little longer.

March Beach Cleanup Day in Onjuku

I was going to write a blog about the March beach cleanup, but nearly two weeks passed in the blink of an eye, and now it's April. The March beach cleanup was conducted by four people when there were many surfers. And the fava beans that were sown in October will grow quickly in March, and we are looking forward to the day when they bear fruit.

Zero Waste Life : Big Decision!

Since last year, I've been working towards a zero waste lifestyle, starting from where I can, one step at a time, in my own way. Just by being aware of it, I think I have reduced the amount of garbage I produce by about 20%. I would like to make steady efforts to reduce garbage by increasing new lifestyles this year as well.

Low Waste Bulk Grocer in San Francisco

"We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly." -- I had a wonderful experience where what had been imprinted as "zero-waste" was replaced with "low-waste".

Zero Waste Plan | Next Step

I have started five specific initiatives to reduce my waste, and I am thinking about what I can do in addition. In order to avoid forcing myself to start something that I will not be able to continue, I will focus on things that I can enjoy doing and feel comfortable with.

Zero Waste Plan | First Step

At about the same time as my trial of living in two locations, Tokyo and Onjuku, I became aware of the need for a Zero Waste lifestyle. There is a lot of talk about sustainable life, eco life, zero waste, etc., but without thinking too hard about it, I started with the things that I throw away every day and can easily change.
