049 Starting a Zero Waste Business (Chatting w/ a student from The VISIONARY METHOD!)

Erin started this journey in 2018 when she was trying to figure out how to make a positive impact on climate change. To give you some context, Erin lived in Toronto and worked a full-time 9 to 5 corporate job. Working in a place where people threw out coffee cups in the trash and recycled their food waste, any impact she would make seemed negligible. Despite some skeptical friends she tested the feasibility of a zero-waste lifestyle by doing a 2-week zero-waste challenge with one other coworker. During the challenge she still produced some plastic waste but she realized how easy it was to make small changes to reduce the amount of waste she produced.

In order to go the full length she needed more supplies. Zero-waste products are surprisingly difficult to find (without plastic packaging!) and especially difficult to find in Canada. This is why she created Hera & Co, to help by not only providing the supplies people need to live a zero-waste lifestyle, but also by offering some pro tips on Hera’s Blog.

Erin is just wrapping up her time as a student inside The VISIONARY METHOD & I am so proud of her journey!
