Hey, welcome! I'm Kim, an Adelaide mother of 2, a fiancé and a soy latte addict! I also have 3 gorgeous furbabies (2 rescue cats and a rescue dog).
My dream of owning an animal rescue farm has for now been put aside (much to the delight of my fiancé), while I inspire others to achieve what we have.
Back in 2018, I heard for the first time how someone was able to throw away only a handful of rubbish a week.
I honestly found this hard to believe...was this even possible?
Then...the guilt set in.
Having grown up in the Adelaide Hills, loving the beach, the outdoors and Mother Nature - I suddenly realised there was a huge disconnect between what I was throwing away (i.e. sending to landfill) and my values in life.
And with 2 young children in tow at the time, our bins were literally overflowing with nappies (and other random waste).
I began taking small steps towards reducing our weekly waste. We started by switching to cloth nappies first, and I think bamboo toothbrushes next.
Each switch I made, I saw improvements in what we were sending to landfill. And each step inspired the next, and the next. I achieved what I had set out to - to reduce our household rubbish to just a handful each week.
Since then, I've realised the impacts our waste is having on our oceans and Mother Nature. It's devastating, and heart-breaking.
So, in 2021 I launched Diminish. To inspire you, your family members and your friends to start living a life with less-waste, and to remind you that every small step counts.
