Waste Warriors online course
If you’re spending too much money, worried about the future or just fed up with putting the bin out, this course is for you!

Please note – buying this course will take you offsite to Thinkific
Do you feel overwhelmed and guilty about the amount of stuff you throw away? Maybe you secretly chuck stuff in a black plastic bag and hope nobody will notice.
Do you find yourself throwing too much food away each week? In fact, it’s even worse than that, while you’re throwing away food, one in nine people across the world go to bed hungry.
Are you concerned about what the future holds for your children and grandchildren? After all, it’s predicted there will be food scarcity, water shortages, that we’re already eating plastics in our foods and we’re depleting finite resources.
Just imagine how it will feel when:
- You no longer argue with your partner about who’s turn it is to put the rubbish out
- You don’t panic if, for some reason, you don’t get a landfill collection one week, because there’s plenty of space left in your bin
- You can look your children and grandchild in the eye and know you’re done your bit
- You’re saving £1500 per year – what will you spend that on – a holiday? Home improvements? A retirement fund?
Here’s what Julia shared on Twitter:
My resolution for 2019 is to go plastic free, aiming for zero waste. Thanks to @myzerowaste Waste Warrior online course, I’m getting obsessed, and it’s not as difficult as I’d expected to make changes!

Let me help you become a waste warrior the simple and quick way, in the comfort of your own home with this online course.
How the course works
Set over 31 days, each day you’ll get a five minute audio and a small challenge to complete. The course is designed to help you work smarter, not harder and I’ve deliberately made it short and to the point. Sure I could put together hourly audios, but I know you’re already busy with endless commitments. I know that you’ll appreciate I’ve cut the waffle and excess padding so that you can get straight to the bits that work and start making progress immediately.
What previous participants have said
Helene was already waste savvy and knew a lot about reducing waste, but still decided to take the Waste Warriors course. Her love of the Earth is fundamental to her attitude to life and a quote from the speech of Chief Seattle of the Suquamis – when the President of the United States offered to buy their land – had a profound effect on her. It was simply “Contaminate your bed and you will one night suffocate in your own waste.”
Although she didn’t reduce her landfill waste by much (her husband is a great one for litter picking when out and about!), she did pick up some new habits that are helping her reduce food waste, including a real understanding of portion control and serving meals from dishes, rather than plating up – which means leftover food is good to eat the following day.
Helene’s favourite section was “Cleaning you and your home,” where she was pleased to see a day dedicated to eradicating disposable wipes from our lives!
Helene shared lots of tips with me during the course such as ideas for sustainable decorations she’d found on Pinterest, the reminder that foodbanks are grateful for donations of carrier bags as well as tins and the suggestion that rhubarb and potatoes are brilliant crops for beginners to try. She also picked up a lot of ideas from our Facebook Group.
In summing up her experience, Helene wrote “This course is excellent for those embarking on their Zero Waste journey. Facts and suggestions are put in a friendly and clear way, without any preaching or smugness, and the challenges are do-able and not daunting.”
By following the steps in the course, Jenny has reduced her household landfill waste by 75-80% – in just a month.
By sourcing alternatives to her limited kerbside recycling facilities she’s able to recycle more. Jenny is more aware of her wants vs needs when shopping and is sourcing more products from refill suppliers and independent sellers.
Her favourite part of the course was taking part in the practical activities, such as the bin audit. She found these challenges made the course content more personal, relevant and demonstrated how much difference can be made through small changes.
Summing up her experience, Jenny said: “The Waste Warriors course is a great way to make a reduced-waste lifestyle a reality in a month.
The daily lessons are concise, informative, and thought-provoking. The lessons are short and easy to fit into a busy schedule.
The course covers a wide ideas and suggestions of how to reduce waste, with lessons organised into topic areas. It provides enough information in each lesson for the listener to get started and tailor the ideas to suit their needs.”
Although Susan is already doing a lot to reduce her waste, she still decided to take the course.
Her favourite parts of the course were about plastics in teabags (which she found so shocking she wrote about it on her own blog!) and the pets section (which she found insightful to apply to her cat.)
Since taking the course, Susan has started brewing tea without plastic, has found a way to make her cat more eco friendly and has learned more about Bokashi bins.
Susan commented that she found the different references given throughout the course a useful starting point to dig deeper into.
In summing up her experience, Susan said: “Thank you for this comprehensive course which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was glad to see that I’m already implementing a lot of these points, areas mentioned, however there were always details that were very useful like realising that there’s plastic in tea bags… or that my cat sand isn’t compostable and I thought it was. It also made me realise that a lot of it can be transferred to my lifestyle here in Indonesia and that so many things can be tackled. You’re an inspiration Rachelle, keep up the great work.”
