Meet Your Instructor

Hi! My name is Marta and I love minimal, zero waste, simple living. 

My zero waste journey started with soap making: for me, it was the first step to take control on the waste I was producing as well as what I was putting on my skin. 

I truly think that zero waste living is actually simple if you follow the right steps: just like soap making!

When does the course start and finish?

On average, we found that student complete the course and come up with their first formulations in about 3 months. However, this varies from person to person! You might take longer, and that's completely ok.

How long do I have access to the course?

You have access to it for one year. After this, you will be unenrolled from the course platform, but you will continue to have access to the community on Facebook.

Why does the course access only last for one year?

You might be surprised, but when people are not given a deadline, they might procrastinate and fail to complete what they signed up for. We deeply care about our students success: by giving you a deadline, we can encourage you to value your time and experience inside the course, and achieve the goals you set your mind to.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 30 days of your purchase date with your explanation and proof that you have tried the course. If there is a valid reason for why you are unhappy with the course, I will give you a full refund! However, please note that simply changing your mind with no explanation or because you just need the money back is not a valid reason. Please familiarise yourself with our terms and conditions.

How can I contact you if we have questions?

Each module has a Q&A section where you can review all the frequently asked questions. If your question is not there, you can ask a new question through a question box. We will answer any new questions once a week. You also have full access to the Soap Making for Zero Wasters Facebook Group to ask for help if you have a doubt, open discussions, ask for opinions etc.

In which weight conversion are the measurements given in the course?

Every recipe is given in both grams and oz. Plus, in the Recipe Calculator (Bonus in Module 6) there is also a grams/oz converter!

Why should I choose your course?

At present and to my knowledge this is the only online course focused on how to make palm oil free, vegan natural soap with a zero waste philosophy in mind.
