This quote really hit home. I'm not sure who said it but we applaud him/her.
The first step to a zero-waste lifestyle is accepting that you are committing to being a contradiction. Yes, you may find yourself carrying a reusable water bottle in your synthetic clothes driving a gas-guzzling car. You may forget your bottle one day and reach for a plastic one in dehydrated desperation. Someone may call you out on it. It’s ok. Tell that person to fuck off, you’re only human.
After all, we don’t need a handful of people doing this perfectly, we need billions of people doing this imperfectly.
