About The Zero Waste Collective

Meet Tara McKenna


Hi there, and welcome! I'm Tara, founder of The Zero Waste Collective and author of Don't Be Trashy: A Practical Guide to Living with Less Waste and More Joy.


Based in Canada, I started my low-waste journey early in 2017. I've always been environmentally conscious, but travelling has been the biggest eye-opener to our global trash problem.


From snorkelling with trash in Bali, Indonesia, to picking up litter on trails in Southern Ontario, Canada, it has become obvious to me that waste is a worldwide issue.

The solution as I see it? Reduce our waste and be mindful consumers with a progress over perfection mindset. Together, we can make a difference by consuming less and creating less trash. Our world depends on it!
