"We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly." - Anne Marie Bonneau | Zero Waste Chef 

Hi! I’m Nicole. I’ll be here with you as we make this world a greener place.

Unknowingly at the time, my journey started at 8 years old when my parents built a house equipped with solar panels, rain barrels, a makeshift compost pile and even a bidet! Sustainability was impressed upon me at a young age and would come to shape the principles, views and passion I carry with me today.

Living sustainably and sharing my knowledge, experience and passion with others has led me to creating Imperfect Zero Waste.  I  offer a variety of services such as Zero Waste Talks, Zero Waste Event Planning and Zero Waste In-Home Consulting.  You can find more information about each on this site as well as reaching out to me directly!

I am also active on Instagram @imperfect_zerowaste where you can follow my journey towards zero waste.  You will find informative and inspirational tips to help you to also live zero waste!  Hope to see you there!

A few of my favorite books!
