Welcome to A Renewable Life! My name is Claire and I am lucky enough to call the Pacific Northwest Home. I started my zero waste journey in 2016 after the Presidential election motivated me to do more. I started A Renewable Life in 2017 in order to hold myself accountable and to share my real experience transitioning to zero waste. My trash doesn’t fit in a mason jar and I am certainly not always perfect, but over time I have changed my habits resulting in lifestyle that focuses on experiences over things and is more critical of the things I choose to buy. Zero waste isn’t always easy, but I hope that by sharing my experience I can inspire others to live a more intentional lifestyle.
