THE EXPLORER: STEP 0

START YOUR ROF JOURNEY

Learn about sustainability and zero-waste. The Journey might seem daunting but we have it covered in simple, practical and fun steps!

THE EXPLORER: STEP 1

REFUSE SINGLE USE ITEMS

Let’s start with the basics - refusing plastic bags, water bottles, trash cups, straws and plastic toothbrushes. Make it a habit to say 'No' and BYO!

 

LEVEL 2

THE ZERO WASTER

The zero-waster has learned the basics and is ready to incorporate the zero waste lifestyle into their homes and beyond!

 

THE ZERO WASTER: STEP 2

REDUCE FOOD WASTE & COMPOST

Discarded food scraps make up to 60% of your bin. Separating organic waste & learning to compost will significantly reduce the impact on landfill.

THE ZERO WASTER: STEP 3

BUY IN BULK

Forget the supermarkets and buy from your local shops, fresh markets and bulk-food stores. Get healthier and Eco-friendly products. Support your community.

THE ZERO WASTER: STEP 4

MAKE YOUR OWN DIY PRODUCTS

What about cleaning products & personal-care essentials? DIY! The best zero-waste alternative is to make your own with natural ingredients that are good for you and the planet.

THE ZERO WASTER: STEP 5

CHOOSE LOW WASTE PARENTING

Disposable nappies are the 3rd largest consumer item in landfill. Rent from a cloth nappy library and enjoy their collection and cleaning services. What about toys? Join a Toy Library !

 

LEVEL 3

THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER

The conscious consumer has already made a significant impact by learning about the zero waste lifestyle. But this is only one piece of the puzzle in reducing our footprint. Where to now?

 

THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER: STEP 6

CHOOSE A PLANT BASED DIET

18% of all green-house gas emissions are caused by livestock farming. Cut down on animal products, source them more ethically and when you can, substitute dairy out of your diet.

THE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER: STEP 7

Fast fashion is a dirty industry, using a tremendous amount of natural resources and exploiting cheap labor. Buy second-hand and choose high quality items that will last.
