About Us

Who We Are

We at MakeLessTrash.com have struggled with balancing all the goals and responsibilities of our normal lives with our desire to reduce our detrimental impact on the planet.   We know it’s not easy, and when something new is hard, it is understandable that many people just give up.  That’s why we built this web site.

Giving people the tools and information they need to easily make sustainable buying decisions is one way to encourage people to make small changes in their day-to-day lives with big benefits for the environment.  We can’t all be zero waste heroes, but hopefully MakeLessTrash.com makes it convenient enough that many people will start making less waste than before, and will find it easy enough that they stick with it.
