About this book

Zero Waste Home is the ultimate guide to simplified, sustainable living from Bea Johnson, author of the popular blog

Living sustainably should not mean forfeiting either comfort or style. In Zero Waste Home Bea Johnson shows, by inspiring example, what green living looks like and offers a practical, step-by-step guide to diminishing our environmental footprints and improving our lives.

It all comes down to the 5 Rs: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot (and only in that order!). Zero Waste Home shows how these key principles can be applied to every area of your house from the kitchen to the kids' room, and it's packed with easy tips for all of us: from refusing freebies to using your plants as air fresheners.

More than a manual, this is the inspiring story of how Bea Johnson transformed her family's health, finances, and relationships for the better by reducing their waste to an astonishing one litre per year.
