A safe space for talking trash

Welcome to Good Little Garbage Girl

Welcome to Good Little Garbage Girl, a newsletter by me, Kate Bratskeir. I’m a journalist and the author of "A Pocket Guide to Sustainable Food Shopping"(Simon & Schuster, 2021), and I’m here to talk trash.

So often I want to write about garbage, and so rarely do people want to pay me to do so. I created this blog so I could put my thoughts and findings down freely, skirting the tyranny of an editor who might decide my stories should go straight in the bin (to past, present and future editors of mine: ily a lot).

Thanks for being here.
