Sustainable Kitchen BONUS: Interview with Lindsay Miles

It never occurred to me that I was part of the problem, and that I could be part of the solution. – Lindsay

Lindsay Miles is an author, creator and all-around inspirational educator on the subject of zero-waste living, less-waste living and sustainable living! In this episode, Alison asks Lindsay some questions about Lindsay’s experience with getting out of the supermarkets and learning to shop in alternate routes.

Nobody is doing it perfectly … But 70% is better than no percent! – Lindsay
