Episode 4: A-year-of-trash-in-a-jar and the packaging free grocery store (S1, E4)

When you Google Zero Waste, or perhaps even more so, when you check it out on social media, the zero waste community manifests itself through lifestyle blogs, DIY guides, upcycling ideas, suggestions for avoiding food waste, food packaging and plastic bags and bottles.


A large portion of the attention point in the direction of single individuals - of citizens.

In this in this episode, we are taking a closer look at the responsibility of the individual. And we’re doing so through the lens of two phenomena that have become almost synonymous with the zero waste movement - putting your entire years’ waste in a glass jar - and the plastic packaging free supermarket.


Sarah (to the left) and Carlyn (to the right)

You’ll meet two experts on how to live a zero waste lifestyle. Carlyn Grebleski of Less Waste World has been putting her trash in a jar for more than one and a half year and Sarah Reindl has opened two packaging free grocery stores, Das Gramm and Das Dekagramm.
