Publisher Description

Bea Johnson is “the mother of the zero waste lifestyle movement.” —CNN

The book that started the waste-free living movement, Zero Waste Living—relates Bea Johnson’s inspirational personal story and provides practical tools and tips to help readers diminish their footprint and simplify their lives.

In Zero Waste Home, Bea Johnson shares the story of how she simplified her life by reducing her waste. Today, Bea, her husband, Scott, and their two young sons produce just one quart of garbage a year, and their overall quality of life has changed for the better: they now have more time together, they’ve cut their annual spending by a remarkable forty percent, and they are healthier than they’ve ever been.

This book shares essential how-to advice, secrets, and insights based on Bea’s experience. She demystifies the process of going Zero Waste with hundreds of easy tips for sustainable living that even the busiest people can integrate: from making your own mustard, to packing kids’ lunches without plastic, to canceling your junk mail, to enjoying the holidays without the guilt associated with overconsumption. Zero Waste Home is a stylish and relatable step-by-step guide that will give you the practical tools to help you improve your health, save money and time, and achieve a brighter future for your family—and the planet.

Great tips & ideas

Thought the author presented realistic ideas and tips for moving to zero waste. The book made me more aware of packaging and it's already changed my shopping habits. I like how she gave lots of ideas and tips that I could implement one at a time (or not at all), depending on my lifestyle.

Weird

Don't waste your money. She's weird. It's seriously unrealistic for a normal mother to do most of the weird stuff she talks about.
Seriously throw out your can opener??? I'm sorry but I guess you don't realize that there's a lot of people out there who don't have the excess leisurely time to always make home made tortilla chips, cheese from scratch or grow and can tomatoes. If she's so OCD about butter wrappers creating waste then why buy meat and dairy products at all?? Industrialized meat and dairy farms are horrible for the environment.
