Meet the Founder

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Tara, founder of The Zero Waste Collective. Based in Canada, I have created this community as an educational hub for the zero waste lifestyle movement.

I started my low waste journey early in 2017 and have shared my experiences on Instagram @mindfully.tara. I've always been environmentally conscious, but travelling over the years has been the biggest eye-opener to our global trash problem. From snorkelling with garbage in Bali, Indonesia, to picking up litter on trails in Southern Ontario, Canada (where I live), it has become obvious to me that waste is an international issue.

The solution as I see it? Reduce our waste and be mindful and ethical consumers with a progress over perfection mindset. I have created The Zero Waste Collective to be the online community where anyone worldwide can join the conversation. Get your zero waste fix here at The Zero Waste Collective with information and how-to guides; eco-friendly brands and campaigns; great recipes and DIY ideas; join the conversation and share your stories; and find like-minded folks!

Looking for conscious business coaching? Head to my personal website!


Together, we can make a difference, one piece of trash at a time. Our world depends on it!
