Zero Waste market place is committed to restoring ireland's forests

Plant Trees. Restore Biodiversity. Fight Climate Change.

Ireland was once the most forested country in Europe. Due to thousands of years of deforestation, our forests were reduced to just 1% by the 1920s.

Since then, our forest cover has increased to 11% - but this is still lower than any other country in Europe.

This eleven fold increase is quite misleading, as only 2% of Ireland is actually covered in native Irish trees, the other 9% is non-native conifer plantations. These mono-cultures provide very little habitat for our native wildlife as they spent millions of year evolving in a different ecosystem on the other side of the planet.

Working with local land owners, we are committed to bringing back our bio-diverse native forests and creating wildlife corridors to restore our ecosystem.

We plant up to 30 different species of native tree, some of which are very rare, making these wildlife corridors and forests the most biodiverse in Ireland in terms of tree diversity.

Each species of tree has it’s own community of organisms that rely upon it, some can only complete their life cycle with the help of a specific tree species. This in turn will increase the biodiversity of insect species such as endangered bees, rare butterflies, beetles and moths. This abundance of insects combined with the abundance of wild berries will provide food for songbirds, many of which are in decline.

Why I started Zero Waste Market Place

Hello! I am Jenny Brewer, married to William and a mother to one daughter, Arwyn who is 7.

We live in the beautiful county of Tipperary with our three cats and three hens! 

I have always been passionate about the environment and our connection to nature. I recycled, composted and did all the things I could to lessen my impact on the environment.  However, having watched the brilliant documentary 'A Plastic Ocean' some time ago on Netflix I realised much more needed to be done.

Plastic is everywhere and we are drowning in it. Ireland is the top producer of plastic waste in Europe, we generate an average of 61 kilos per person every year. 

I began taking note of all the plastic coming into our home and looked at ways of reducing or eliminating it. Since being awakened to the zero waste movement I have made changes to almost all areas of my lifestyle, from shopping and travelling to gardening and cooking. Small changes when multipled by millions of people make a massive difference. 

Zero Waste Market Place was born to make sustainable products available to everyone, starting locally at markets and events in my home county.

I am proud to stock some wonderful products from 11 other small businesses here in Ireland. This helps reduce the carbon footprint involved in transportation as well as supporting jobs and the local economy.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. 💚
