WOWW (War On Waste Weekly) was created by Sydney mum Helen Barry, a print journalist turned eco blogger and Zero Waste soapmaker. Helen soon realised that her family's zero-waste adventure was already a way of life for many others.
Along the way, she also discovered the joy of cold process soapmaking - the traditional way to make soap without nasty detergents or synthetics. In soapmaking Helen has not only found a true passion, but also a solution to banish plastic bottles from her home.
Helen now shares her handmade, small-batch palm-oil free soap with others, through her online shop, at local markets and eco-minded cafes and shops.
