Why I started Zero Waste Market Place

I am Jenny, 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 try to source as many products in Ireland as possible in order to reduce the carbon footprint involved in their transportation and to support the local economy and jobs.

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