Ep 3: A life with less waste with Magali Lafleur

In this special episode, Toronto-based Art Director and Zero Waster Magali Lafleur shares a bit of everything from urban frustrations, feminine hygiene, zero waste confessions, to tips on leading a cleaner lifestyle in a congested planet. If you’ve ever considered living your life with less trash, give this a listen! 

About Magali: Two years ago, Magali started her journey to reduce trash in her lifestyle and learned how to be more environmentally wise by a simple Google search. It was a lifestyle change that she became increasingly more passionate about. You can read about her lifestyle of living zero waste on her Instagram blog @findyouralternative

3 Easy steps we’ve picked for living cleaner lifestyles from this episode are:

  1. bring your own container when purchasing meals
  2. get to know your lifestyle and decision-making process so you can anticipate what you’ll need in your day
  3. invest in quality products so you won’t have to buy as much in the long run!

Join the party!

Big corporate, government, macro action is nothing without personal, local, human demand. However, by the time large organizations start taking action, it might already be too late.

Why wait for larger, slower players to start making their moves in 2030 when you can make your contribution within your next 24 hours?

The advantage we have as singular units of people is that we’re faster and more forgivable. If we make a mistake, it’s way easier for us to right our wrongs as opposed to relying on several tiers of organized hierarchy to make amends.

With that said, we have exciting news: Double Cow and Toronto Zero Waste blog, Find Your Alternative, is pairing up to clean our parks. Starting July 25th with Trinity Bellwoods.

Starting at 6:30PM, we’re going hands-in to collect litter. Join us to make your contribution to the community. See you there!
