Hi, I'm Shannon! I'm one half of the echo team and I started my low-impact journey one coffee at a time. After reading about ocean plastic pollution I began following blogs about going plastic free and while I found the zero waste movement so inspiring - it was also completely overwhelming! I felt paralysed by both the enormity of the plastic problem and the idea that I had to fit all of my rubbish in a mason jar to make a difference! Eventually though I came to my senses and realised the best thing to do was just SOMETHING - so I decided I would ditch takeaway coffee cups and only use the Khordz mug my brother had made for me. After I mastered the mug, other swaps just got easier and easier!
