winner of competition

It’s my favourite day of the month, when I get to give away a fabulous prize to someone. It’s definitely time for a Mrs green doing a happy dance

In our July monthly competition, we joined up with our friends at Natural Collection to offer one winner a bokashi bin.

Bokashi bins are brilliant for those who want to reduce their food waste, but might not have access to a large compost bin. They are ideal for families who create cooked food scraps because a bokashi will happily munch on all sorts of cooked food, unlike a regular compost bin.
A bokashi will effortlessly turn your rubbish into valuable nutrients and save you having to send food to landfill; turning your ‘rubbish’ into a resource; which is what we love to promote here at My Zero Waste.

So, without further ado, we’re pleased to announce our July My Zero Waste winner – Ian Calcutt who came up with the slogan for our site which is “Because we’ve had our fill of rubbish”.

Well done Ian and thanks for the tagline, which will now be used on our site 🙂

August brings me another chance to give something away in our monthly competition. Yipee!

  1. Hi Mrs Green,

    Ian will find the Bokashi the final piece of the jigsaw in the Food Waste recycling challenge. Once that is achieved the bin waste is transformed into a collection of plastic packaging and related items. Did you receive many entries?


  2. Mr Green says:

    Congratulations Ian! Also many thanks to all of you who entered. We had a great selection of ideas, catch phrases and taglines. It was a pretty hard decission to make.

    The bin is 85% recycled polypropolene and as JC points out can be recycled after its useful life and turned into other useful items.

  3. Hi Guys – Just a quick hello, while I’m on holiday to say well done on all the new stuff, it looks great. Can’t hang around for too long because I’m having loads of fun over here.

    Huge congratulations to Ian. My Bokashi has proved to be extremely valuable in getting down to virtually Zero Waste…and with my 4 year old bin saboteur, I could never have succeeded in my challenge without it

    Great tag line by the way…I love it 🙂

    See you soon x

    Hi Mrs A – haven’t you got a view to wonder at or something? LOL! Great to see you popping in from sunny Europe.

    It’s great that you have got on so well with your bokashi too; it seems to have really made a difference to the amount of food waste you have; which is brilliant.
