Many things harm our planet, out of which global warming is a big problem. Mira Petrova is a young illustrator and graphic designer living in Sofia, Bulgaria. Artists try their best to live zero-waste in their life. But she fails miserably very often, and it makes her sad and disappointed. Zero Waste Living Can Be Tough! But I realized the following: The more I become “aware” of what I buy and the options I have, the more aware I become; My decision-making process changes. This is how the term “waste awareness” appeared in my life. Zero waste just seemed too ambitious and overwhelming.
Meera began creating the comic, with a new approach to the subject. Mira The characters in her comic are all animals. She wanted to give people a fun and positive way to learn and share about the zero waste philosophy, free from shame and guilt.
The stories in the comics are inspired by Mira’s personal experiences and situations that I have seen or heard. Since we started publishing this, people also write to share zero waste-related situations, thoughts, and successes and I couldn’t be happier and more grateful. It makes me feel like we are all part of a larger community and together we can make a difference.
