About Us

Zero Waste Tiny Home : small steps with a smaller footprint

Is it possible to live a Zero Waste lifestyle? Is it possible to comfortably live in a tiny home.?

We are rather ordinary Canadians who believe we can change our ways of daily living to reduce our environmental impact.For years, we have been sharing solutions and ideas that can help to make individuals , businesses and communities more sustainable. We believe the best way to promote positive change is to lead by example. Buddy often says "if we can do it ,anyone can!"

 As directors of Zero Waste Canada, we driven across Canada in our Chevy Bolt (Bolt Across Canada) with the purpose of showing the possibility of a Zero Waste road trip driving an electric vehicle.

Our Zero Tiny Home is the next phase of our journey with a purpose.
