The interior designer who decided to live a ‘Zero Waste’ lifestyle

London Live meets the former Interior Designer who decided to quit her job and start a new business during lockdown aimed at reducing food packaging.

Jordan Perata launched her zero waste store ‘Kilo’ just days before lockdown. She says the surge in online shopping witnessed during the pandemic has made more of us consider how much waste we create, particularly when it comes to food shopping.

The North London based entrepreneur says although becoming totally zero waste is tricky, every step towards it makes a difference.
