How many things you throw away are designed to be used only once? Could you live well without using any disposable items? Lindsay Miles put it to the test.
Lindsay is the author of the plastic-free, zero waste, minimalism and sustainable living blog Treading My Own Path. In 2012 she took part in a month long plastic-free living challenge called Plastic Free July, and decided to make plastic-free living, and zero waste living, her way of life.
Plastic Free July opened her eyes to the idea that as individuals, we have the power to make a difference with the choices that we make every day. These individual actions, when repeated by thousands of people, have the potential to bring about real, lasting change.
Lindsay put her energy and passion into inspiring others to make small changes in their lives, believing that empowering individuals is what builds movements. Now a Writer, Facilitator and Sustainability Educator, Lindsay shares her journey through her blog, books and community talks.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
