Interview with Zero-Waste Blogger Kathryn Kellogg

With just one step at a time, lifestyle blogger Kathryn Kellogg is seeking to reduce the amount of waste we produce. Her goal is to send nothing to a landfill, and she’s achieved the amazing feat of fitting every piece of trash (that’s right, every single one) that she produced in a year in a single mason jar. How amazing is that?

When she wasn’t out saving the world, she took the time to talk to me and dish out her advice on all things love and relationships.

 What do you do and why do you do it?

 I am an environmentalist. I write a successful blog (, do public speaking and workshops about how the small changes we make add up to large impact. I like to focus on redefining our consumption and organic health living. I had a cancer scare in college, which really revolutionized the way I see the world.

I want to make sure that women everywhere are empowered and making healthy living choices for both themselves and the planet.

What’s the best gift you ever got?

I majored in musical theatre and toured doing professional theatre out of college. For my 16th birthday my parents surprised me by taking me to NYC for a long weekend to see Phantom of the Opera and Spamalot on Broadway. It was awesome. I still remember looking out the window as we flew in; it was pretty amazing.

What’s the worst gift you ever got?

My ex-boyfriend got me a turtleneck. I regret not being grateful for it though. It was a nice turtleneck, I’ve just never worn a turtleneck a day in my life.
What’s your advice for all things love, sex and dating?

Having respect for the other person. Feelings come and go, but you’ll always want to be with someone you truly respect. It also helps when you have the inevitable disagreement. Also, self-care is your responsibility, not your partners. You have to make sure you take time to fill yourself up and do things just for you.

What’s your go to pick me up?

I like to go out with a friend to a coffee shop or have them come over and we’ll make a nice dinner together. It’s nice to have company that can distract you from whatever you’re worried about. Or I might make a fancy face mask or scrub at home.

Tell us about your first heartbreak…

It was hard, but it was good. We both wanted different things out of life. I wanted to leave and he wanted to stay. Some people thrive on being a big fish in a small pond, and some people don’t.

Tell us about a time you Bounced Back better than ever 

Bouncing back is just a part of life, I don’t think there’s a particularly earth shattering bounce back moment. But, I do find it strange that life has always seemed to bring me to a time and place where I think, “I’ve spent my whole life preparing for this. Wow. Look at how this worked out. This is it!” Then in a year or two I realize the same thing again. It’s cyclical, we’re constantly preparing for our future and that’s pretty cool!
