Intro and benefits of this course


Welcome to your Zero Waste cleaning course. From saving stress to reducing waste, in this lesson you’ll discover the four main benefits of taking this course. And you might learn something surprising about the amount of products you really need to get your home clean!

Watch the video and download the pdf for reference. While this course focuses on reusing what you have and using old products before buying new ingredients, I’ve made it easy to source all your Zero Waste cleaning ingredients in my Amazon shop. Purchasing through this link means I earn a small amount of commission at no extra cost to you. The money is used to fund the running costs of this website and keeps the annual Zero Waste Week campaign free for everyone to take part.
