Want to reduce your waste without moving a finger? Here's the story of how we made it possible.

Sorry, that headline was misleading and yes, you can call me a bad boy for writing it. But to be fair, it's not too far from the truth. How much mental and physical effort do you have to put in when you want to go from a 'meat-eating SUV-driving party lifestyle' to a more...how should I phrase this...healthy and sustainable lifestyle?

Completely changing your lifestyle is a lot of work, and it takes time. Too much time. So much time in fact that we were getting pretty stressed out about it and decided to act. We decided we needed to create a way for people to transform their life with a click of a button. So yes, you do have to move a finger. But now, it's just one.


Who are these clowns?

Some call us clowns (and we never forget to have fun), but we're dead serious about this. So let's get started and introduce the team behind Wayste.

Michel is a true "Rhine Valley" guy like you would imagine them to be - honest, hard working and always up for fun. And yes, he's handsome, but who cares *sigh*. He loves to play ice hockey and cruise on his snowboard in winter, and in the summer you can find him in some river or lake, enjoying life. I've met Michel during my studies in a crowded classroom many years ago, and four months later we moved in together. Bromantic? Hold on to your hat, Miss Pratt. Before we had even graduated University we joined the same company, and six months later ended up in the same team. Now if that's not a true bro-love story, I don't know what is.

Oh hey! That's me. It's always hard to write something about yourself because you never know when it becomes too self-obsessed. So I'm going to keep it simple. I was born in Brazil, grew up in five countries and ended up back in Switzerland at the age of 19. I speak a few languages and absolutely love to travel and see new places. I have three brothers (respect, mom!) and I shave my head once a week (I know you were wondering about that!). And no, I won't let my hair grow in the near future *sigh". I like my head shiny, what can I say?!


So, how do I reduce waste?

First of all - and this is important - nobody expects anyone to go COMPLETELY zero waste. It's not an ultimatum, it's a process. And even if we never reach that point of zero waste, everything we do on our way there will have contributed to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

Second - I'm not just talking about trash here. There's a lot of things you can waste: plastic, packaging, food, time...and the list goes on. The goal is to reduce waste as a whole (although we'll start with packaging first, and make our way through the list).

So, what you can do right now, is focusing on the things you consume, like food for example. With Wayste, you don't have to worry that your food comes tripple-packaged in cardboard and plastic. You order online (with that one finger, remember?) and we deliver your products in reusable packaging.

Check out our products to see which ones are available today. We're constantly adding new ones, so make sure to check in from time to time to see what else you can get waste-free!
