Live with less waste and more joy

Hi there, I'm Tara!


I created the blog, The Zero Waste Collective, and wrote the book, Don't Be Trashy: A Practical Guide to Living with Less Waste and More Joy.

I dedicate my time to inspiring people to live lighter on this planet by living with less waste - inspired by minimalism - to create a life filled with more joy.

My professional background is in environmental planning, with a master's degree in urban and regional planning. You can find me on LinkedIn!

Want to work together? Email me at info@thezerowastecollective.com. I'm available for aligned brand collaborations and speaking opportunities.
