Megean Weldon is a Midwestern girl who calls Kansas City her home. Since 2015, Megean has set forth on a journey to create zero waste. Known as The Zero Waste Nerd, she has re-evaluated her life to send nearly no trash to the landfill. She started her blog Zero Waste Nerd (zerowastenerd.com) to show her progress of eliminating waste from day one. The transition made her more connected to food, it saved her a lot of money, and it made her healthier. She invites readers to join in on this journey.
