Hi! I’m Lyne: part-time blogger. I moved to Nelson more than a decade ago from the other side of Canada. I live in Nelson with my partner and daughter in the beautiful Heddlestone Village, a fairly new cohousing project. I love music, dance, children’s books and a good laugh.

I felt compelled to create a blog to share ways we in the Nelson area can reduce our waste. We are blessed with so many services, resources, and businesses that can help meet this goal.

I want to highlight these “waste-slimming” local resources and ideas.


I am a journalist with a professional background in marketing and communications. In addition to an enthusiasm for words and ideas, my passions lay with music, slow food and sustainable fashion.

I see reporting on waste management in Nelson as a positive contribution to my community and an enriching learning experience for myself and my young family.

I look for concrete positive actions to improve our habits of consumption and to pressure industries to reduce packaging.


Taking responsibility for the environment is one of my core values. And this core value drives my lifestyle and work choices. I strive to do the best I can to live a life that consumes less, requires less money, and where I can be of service to others. 
I've spent decades working as a content editor and producer – everything from photography to video to podcasting to broadcasting to blogging to social media and so much more. 
I'm keen to use my values and diverse marketing and communications skillset to help Slimmer Waste to educate others and spread the word and about zero-waste.
