UPDATE: Zero Waste Home – South Africa Tour 2017

Bea Johnson of Zero Waste Home is the guru of the Zero Waste lifestyle. She is inspiring people around the world by sharing her journey through social media and being invited to give talks around the world. She has given 100+ speeches in 20+ countries on 5 continents, since 2011. She has spoken at The European Parliament, United Nations, Google, Adobe and more.

So imagine my joy when she asked if I would be interested in helping getting her to South Africa in May! Especially as she is the one who inspired me to start my journey.

Loving Majozi – proudly South African music

Discovered Majozi via a podcast from Linc in Ballito. Downloaded it on iTunes and I’m loving it. He is a Durban boy, and in my books you score points just for that.

He has opened for The Lumineers, Gangs of Ballet and more. Check him out.

You will no doubt recognise him for this …

But you might not know him for these …

“Majozi is a proudly South African musician from the coastal city of Durban who wears his heart on his sleeve. Literally. He has tattoos dedicated to Jesus and to his mother two very defining aspects of his life, both of which inspire the music he writes.

At the age of thirteen, he started to teach himself guitar, which eventually led to him studying a foundation course in jazz and popular music at the University of KwaZulu Natal. He describes his music as being Indiefolk with subtle influences of electro and attributes his faith as one of his musical inspirations.” taken from majozi.co.za

Durbanite, proudly South African, Christian, so talented. All a recipe for huge success.

Find him on Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud.
