Environmentalism is not just a trend, it's become an essential aspect of shaping the future of our planet. In a world full of single-use plastics, fast fashion and growing landfills, it can be overwhelming to think about reducing our impact. The zero-waste movement is taking these challenges head-on. Through making everyday decisions about what we choose to consume and dispose of, we can turn the future of our wonderful home planet around.

On this episode of the Pocket Money podcast, we're joined by author, rocket scientist and zero-waste expert Anita Vandyke. Her helpful tips on what it means to reduce your impact on the environment are as accessible as they are practical. From the minimalism trends of Marie Kondo, to the surprisingly simple ways to create your own cleaning supplies, this episode will have you off on your own waste-free journey faster than you can say "KeepCup".
