Zero Waste Home–The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life By Reducing Your Waste

Bea Johnson's book, Zero Waste Home ON TWE RADIO JUNE 1,2–In her new book, Zero Waste Home (@ScribnerBooks), Bea Johnson gives her ultimate guide to reducing waste in the house. She describes how she went from a 3,000 square foot home with 64 gallons of trash weekly to a life of zero waste. Now her family produces one quart of garbage a year.

Her logo is “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot.” By following this message she says you will have avoided as much trash and garbage as possible. Her blog and this book give many helpful tips on how to deal with the excess in your life—everything from giving presents that are experiences to building a simple wardrobe.

If you want a good guide that will conserve your money and give you more time to do the things you want to, this is a terrific one to read.  And you might help the planet along the way. The book is printed using recycled paper and inks that are environmentally friendly.
