Hello there! I'm Lindsay, a passionate zero-waste and plastic-free living educator, author and spokesperson who helps people take action to reduce their rubbish, and find a more meaningful life with less waste and less stuff. I began my website Treading My Own Path in 2013, sharing ideas, tips and strategies, and I started giving talks and running workshops offline in that same year. Since 2013 I've delivered more than 200 talks and workshops to a diverse range of audiences: local and state government organizations, community groups, small businesses and large organizations including Bankwest and KPMG. In 2016 I spoke at Tedx Perth about 'The Non-Disposable Life'. In May 2019 I published my first book "Less Stuff" with Hardie Grant books. I've been featured by the ABC and BBC, Channel 9, The Guardian, Seven West Media, The Sunday Times, TreeHugger and more. I loved sharing what I've learned and helping others. My passion: to encourage and support others to embrace change, reconnect with their values and make a positive impact in their own lives and on the world around them.
"I already know a lot of the zero waste things so wasn't sure how valuable the course would be but I learned a lot. Especially where to recycle things and places to find info. I'd recommend WASTEless to people who are looking to change as it gave lots of great beginners info."
"I thought I was already doing a lot to save the planet. This course opened my eyes to so much more that I can do."
Tracy Bishop, Town of Victoria Park
