S5 E01 Wheelie Bins with Gemma Saltgrass

Are you worried about waste? If so, join us on an epic adventure of plastic reduction, waste management and letting your wheelie bin get dusty from neglect! In this episode you can hear all about one inspiring local who has tackled this challenge head on. Gemma has set herself the incredible challenge of putting her landfill wheelie bin out just once per year! Hear all about how she managed to reduce her waste through making different shopping decisions and lifestyle changes.  What can and can’t be recycled is in constant flux and local landfill is a big pain in the council’s arse. It is becoming clearer and clearer that when we want to throw things away, there is actually no such magical place as ‘away’… it is just ‘over there’.   Inspired by Gemma, Allie is up for this challenge and her first goal is to reduce the frequency of putting her bin out to once every 3 months. Follow her journey with this across this new season of Saltgrass and how she reduces what needs to go to landfill. We are inviting you to join us and challenge yourself to reduce your waste and measure this by how many times you put out your kerbside bin.  If you normally put it out every week, see if you can put it out once a month.  If you put it out once a month, see if you can put it out every three or six months.  Join us to swap notes, resources and tips and ideas.
