Cambridge mum claims she only fills up one wheelie bin of rubbish a year, what's her secret?

A Cambridge mother of two claims she has the secret to living a clean greeen lifestyle, saying her family puts out just one wheelie bin of rubbish a year.

Nic Turner is a self-described 'greenful coach' living a zero waste life that she has turned into a business. 

"People were noticing and they were asking questions about it and if I was engaging them in a way that didn't feel was overwhelming or guilting them into doing things they were really open to making change and that's what really inspired me to think there's a huge opportunity here."

Nic Turner spoke to TVNZ1's Seven Sharp about how she has turned her zero waste lifestyle into a business by showing others how to follow her example. 

"I've had amazing engagement, so any time I've offered them they've sold out really quickly and I think that's because one there's been a really exciting shift in awareness around this sort of space."

Jody Krishnan who walked through the Turner home says: "It's far exceeded my expectations every room we went into I was thinking oh my goodness that small change I could make."

Ms Turner jokes saying she feels pressure now to maintain just that 'one' bin of rubbish.

"I just get in and jump it down" she says.
