10 Zero Waste influencers (II)

In the first part of this article, I mentioned 5 renowned environmental activists: Bea Johnson, Kathryn Kellogg, Lauren Singer, Rob Greenfield and Greta Thunberg. They have contributed with their great work to Zero Waste, which is a worldwide tendency that bets on Reject, Reduce, Reuse/Reutilize, Recycle and Rot, to which FySelf wants to contribute with the creation of a universal platform that allows the reduction of paper usage.

I’ll now share the names of 5 other influencers of the TOP 10 that I started last week.

In this entertaining interview for CuerpoMente, she affirms an excellent idea that we should all take into account and apply in our lifes: “Before I let myself be tempted with something at a store, I ask myself: how will I throw this away when it’s no longer useful?”.
