About

Hello and welcome to Escape Waste – the online stop for plastic-free products and trash-free living. I created this place to inspire more people to ditch  plastic and help our planet escape all the waste generated by humanity.

Who am I?

My name is Antonia and I am a digital marketing freelancer. In the summer of 2017, I decided to detox my life so I quit my 9 to 5 job and began eliminating plastic from my life. I challenged myself to find a plastic-free alternative for at least one item every month. I began with carrying a reusable water bottle and a tote bag everywhere I go. Then continued with changes in my bathroom and kitchen. A few tiny but consistent steps.

I learned that the most important thing about zero waste living is not trying to do it ideally all the time. As Anne Maroe Bonneau said: “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”

So what’s the idea of the project?

There are tons of products on Amazon and it’s easy to get lost in a sea of endless opportunities. That’s why I decided to create a curated selection of reusable products and make it easy for zero waste enthusiasts to find the right items.

What else to expect from this site?

I plan to create lots of useful information and tips about the zero waste lifestyle, share with you recipes for trash-free cooking, introduce you to ethical and sustainable brands from around the globe, give a shoutout to eco-friendly initiatives.

How am I related to Amazon?

I am an Amazon Associate which means I use their database of products to create this zero waste shop. All products are linked to Amazon with affiliate links. You can browse and put as many items as you want in your cart. Once you are done shopping, you will be redirected to Amazon to complete your purchase. No financial transactions occur on Escape Waste.

As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This means that if you choose to purchase a product from Escape Waste via my affiliate links, I will receive a small commission from Amazon. Of course, this comes at no extra cost for you. The prices you see here are the actual prices you will see on Amazon too. Escape Waste is here to simply ease your shopping experience.
