Plastic lasts forever zero waste

Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis Presents…

Lyndsey & Jesse Manderson might seem like a little husband and wife team, but we get to share with you, our readers, the practical reasons to live zero waste from some of the world’s leading zero waste experts.

10 Tips: How to live Zero Waste.


Waylon talks with Lyndsey & Jesse Manderson, founders of ZERO (Waste) Market in Denver.


*Note: elephant journal is not, in this case, a sponsor for ZERO Market. In any case, we say what we want—good and bad, happy and sad.

 Info from ZERO market’s site

ZERO market, opening in early 2015, will offer customers non-toxic, preservative-free groceries, organic and locally grown produce, “cruelty-free” body care and eco-household products all in bulk and without single-use packaging.

All products at ZERO market are healthy alternatives to the products available at conventional grocery chains and are specifically sold to be a “zero-waste” product. The mission: to create a more convenient way of living zero-waste and helping the community prevent and divert as much trash from the landfills as possible. Stop the trash at the source.

ZERO market will also be giving back to the community by participating in community projects and hosting fundraisers for local community services. It offers workshops for healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyles while keeping a sliding scale to make it affordable for all income families. We just launched a campaign to ask for support from like-minded individuals to help shape the future of shopping.

About the Founders: 

Lyndsey Manderson, Vegan for eight years, mother of two, extremely passionate about the earth, creatures from all walks of life and community networks. She has a Bachelor of Science from Portland State University and a Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia as well as recent experience in environmental education, running a Community Volunteer Club and initiating a recycling program at the Secondary school she works at. She has not only the passion and determination for a project like ZERO market, but the education to be able to sustain the values of the business. She has also been a mental health worker for the past seven years in the downtown eastside of Vancouver, British Columbia (noted as the poorest postal code in Canada), working with a population dealing with addiction and mental illness and supporting those who need the extra help getting by, day-to-day. Working the front lines of community work has contributed to her commitment and determination to make an impact in sustainable practices and spreading the knowledge so it is accessible to people of all social status.

Jesse Manderson, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, will be the manager and operator of the on-site workshops, seminars and community events held very frequently throughout the year at ZERO. He has several years of Consulting Holistic Nutrition experience as well as years of current practice research, leading seminars and nutritional journalism with YesWellness in Vancouver, British Columbia. Jesse also has more than 13+ years as a mental health worker and has been an important advocate in the community for the underprivileged and malnourished. He has been living a plant-based lifestyle for the past 18 years and has continued to keep up with current health and nutrition practices throughout as well as an incredibly motivating force in a lot of people’s lives.

These people are truly amazing! This is what is to be passionate about keeping your environment clean and love the natural world, means! Our planet is so polluted and desperately need solutions for taking care of all the waste that the growing population of the planet produces. The impact on the environment is really big and solutions are not as effective as they need to be. I support the Zero Waste project and I try to produce as less trash as possible in order to contribute to this project! I feel even more inspired to do it after I read about these devoted people!

Great article! It's so motivating to me and perhaps many other people, to read how many people have already achieved a zero-waste lifestyle!

I am so glad to read that there are people who care about the environment and make everything in order to protect nature. I am one of these zero waste people who love doing things in my way. I mean, I make my own shampoo and soap but it will be great if there is a way to buy such non toxic products because this will save me a lot of time. Thank you for the interesting information!

Wonderful article! This is definitely the future! Creating as less waste as possible and recycling all the rest of it!

Good 10 reminders. Also, just walking is great exercise built naturally into every day. Haven't had a car in 4+ years, but can get anywhere on the Halifax peninsula by walking, or now that winter has come–by busing. Public transportation takes many cars off the road, and for pedestrians like myself, it is freeing not to have to worry about parking, not to mention car maintenance + insurance!

We in India have spoilt our environment through massive garbage, daily, and the gasoline driven vehicles that keep growing in a country of 1.3 Billion people ! The formal systems of governance at the Centre and the States have all been going around circles how best to deal with or manage the waste we create. i am now running my 85 th year, its the grandchildren here that i am concerned about and their FUTURE. You should help make contact with our Govt. of India at the Centre in DELHI and propose + motivate them to look at the problem/s involved and the micro level solutions. e have tended to pick all that the West ot Japan and China have done (or are doing) and that is called Development and Progress--which it is NOT.
