About A Waste Free World
Hey waste free friends, my name is Sarah Richard, I'm the founder of A Waste Free World. I live in Devon in the UK, and am a passionate scuba diver (as well as the founder of the world's largest female scuba dive community Girls that Scuba.)
My journey to a waste free world started a few years ago when I started to notice more and more plastic in the ocean while scuba diving. I wanted to make a bigger difference than just quitting plastic myself so decided to share everything I learnt online and set up a plastic free shop alongside it.
If you are interested to find out more about how and why I started this business (I even talk about how I funded the set up and initially funded the first plastic free products) just watch that video on the top there.
The moto always is:
"Keep our oceans blue and planet green"
With the launch of this online store I hope to give you plastic and waste free options to everyday items all in one place. No need to go to multiple websites to find everything you want – causing more packaging/delivery pollution and fuelling large business who may not actually be plastic free.
I'm definitely not perfect and my plastic and waste free journey is still a struggle some days, which I hope I can share with you all on the social media. One thing I do know is we are really enjoying the process and providing the community with alternatives and connecting with likeminded people.
