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.
