Vicky Ellmore

I have a website called Reusable Nation that I started when my partner and I started reducing our waste. Its purpose is to share what we’ve learnt on our zero waste journey, tips and advice. It also includes a map of Where to shop waste free in Australia that shows where people can buy things without packaging.” [Editor: I looked up my suburb (Eltham) on the map and it listed Eltham Deli, Organic Fix and Thrive Bulk Wholefoods, which seems like a reasonable list.]

See Vicky’s website.

I have recently launched the Reusable Nation rainbow party kit on The Party Kit Network so that my community and surrounding ones have a kit of re-usable plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, and party decorations that can be used by everyone in the community for birthday and other parties instead of using single-use.” [Editor: Vicky lives in Hurstbridge and her party kit covers the following suburbs/town(s): Hurstbridge, St Andrews, Diamond Creek, Wattle Glen, Panton Hill, Eltham and surrounds.]
