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.

If you have any product suggestions, plastic free tips or just want to have a little chat about the environment give me an email or say hey on Instagram
