Fantastic!

Everyone needs to listen to this podcast! It is educational, eye opening and absolutely packed full of useful and practical tips to help individuals reduce their waste!

Very informative, exactly what the world needs!

Succinct, factual, taking a seemingly boring yet so important matter with a note of humour. Some gold nuggets for anyone who is looking into reducing their waste, and most importantly the crucial information people need to know about waste management and some of its related myths being dispelled (e.g coffee cups aren’t recyclable!). Maybe addressing more specific subjects such as dos and don’ts in recycling could help on the education side, or taking a couple of listeners questions on each episode? Keep up the good work guys we (and future generations) NEED YOU!

A great listen

Well I listened and thought about my coffee consumption then went out and bought a reusable coffee cup. You could say you opened one persons eyes imagine how many more people who have done the same. Worth a listen
