Inspiring

Mariska is such an inspiration. Her passion for sustainability and going waste-free is so powerful that you can’t help but be affected by it. My wife and I have taken away some very useful tips on going waste-free, some we have never even thought of before and have already started implementing them. The world is in need of more people like Mariska. Her podcast is a must listen to if you want to starting living a waste-free life.
