I love Zero Waste Home by Bea Johnson.
It is exactly the kind of smart, stylish, practical, frugal, minimalist, conservation home guide that I’ve been looking for.
But I didn’t know I was looking for it until I happened to run across a little blurb in Sunset magazine that said that Bea’s family of four only produces one quart of garbage per year.
Can you believe it?
I had to find out more. Which led me to this slide show article on Sunset’s web site called “The zero-waste home.”
After looking at the inspiring slides and reading the article, I put Bea’s book on hold at the library. I checked out her blog and her top tips. When the book came through after a few weeks, I devoured it in a day. Then I read it again.
Zero Waste Home is chock-full of great tips and examples of how Bea and her family have been able to reduce waste, reduce consumption, save money and still live a fabulous and fun life. It is a book after my own heart.
I’m so inspired by this book that my next blog posts will detail how I’ve put Bea’s tips to work in my home and in my life. Stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the book!
