Katie Conklin, Co-Host

Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Katie began her zero-waste journey in 2015 after being inspired by Trash is for Tossers CEO, Lauren Singer, and slowly increased her practices and knowledge over the years. She's been shopping for clothing exclusively secondhand for over four years and slowly reducing use of plastic, but this lifestyle really went to another level when she became pregnant with her daughter, Lilah. As a way to reduce the waste with a newborn, she swapped the conventional diapers & wipes and formula for more sustainable options. Now, she just wants to spread the message that shopping secondhand, buying bulk, and having a low waste baby is easier now than it's every been!
