Listen to the Episode Below (00:34:34)

Bek Stiegler went pretty much went from the average consumer (supermarket shopping, buying stuff she didn’t need, buying the cheapest and not caring where it came from etc) to growing pretty much all her own food (except meat and dairy), reusing and recycling, and being an extremely conscious consumer.  She lives in Melbourne on a 750m² suburban block.

She writes about her own sustainable living journey over at Bek’s Backyard, a popular gardening and lifestyle blog.

During the show we talk about how she went from a barren backyard to building a fruitful and abundant suburban food farm!  She loves fruit trees and eating fruit that is in season.  If there is a glut she preserves via dehydration or water bath.

Her passion and enthusiasm about growing her own food is clearly evident as you listen to the episode.  Please thank Bek for sharing her story and journey with us all.

TGoG 113 – Plastic Free July with Erin Rhoads

Listen to the Episode Below (00:32:57)

Erin is the author of The Rogue Ginger a blog dedicated to sharing her plastic free and zero waste lifestyle.

During this episode and via her blog she shares plastic free alternatives to shopping, cooking, makeup, fashion, cleaning and travel while trying to create zero waste.

Plastic Free July with Erin Rhoads

The journey began June 2013 when she watched a documentary about a couple in Canada who pledged to not buy anything new for one year while trying also to produce no trash. The documentary was called the Clean Bin Project. After the credits rolled Erin looked at her own life and was shocked by the mindless waste her day-to-day actions were creating, so she decided to make some changes.

She discovered Plastic Free July and took on the challenge to quit single use plastic for one month, blogging about it along the way. Once it was over Erin decided to quit plastic for good. Basically, she began living more like her great grandparents.

She is now living a simpler, healthier and happier life. Plus the money saved from buying less stuff has been a nice reward.
