Product Description

Review

“Bea Johnson’s book has allowed me to get even closer to Zero Waste than I was before I picked it up. Read it today. It will transform the way you view waste.” (Ed Begley, Jr.)

Zero Waste Home is an amazing story of personal transformation. It compels us to recognize that our heedlessly wasteful ways are not gateways to prosperity and convenience, but barriers to a good life and a healthy planet. Bea Johnson has produced an invaluable resource.” (Edward Humes, author of Garbology)

“Waste not, want not isn't about penny pinching. It's about gratitude and loving our lives. Bea Johnson doesn't just teach us to save the planet. She teaches us to save ourselves." (Colin Beavan, author of No Impact Man)

“If you want inspiration and practical information... [Zero Waste Home] is powerful.” (Natural Child World magazine)

“Clear, authentic, knowledgeable, helpful and a great read. Zero Waste Home will make a difference.” (Paul Hawken, author of Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution See all Product Description

Bea Johnson lives of what she writes and writes well. Living zero waste takes imagination, and a talent for looking at what you buy in what type of packaging. How can you get what you want without packaging waste? Great ideas and advice on how to work towards the goal of a zero waste home.

When I put "Zero Waste Home" on hold at the library, I expected a home decor book complete with glossy photos and design tips on how to create a functional, minimalist living space. However, Bea Johnson's picture-less book reads more like an instruction manual on adopting a greener lifestyle. Despite my surprise, I found the writing enthusiastic, thoroughly researched and relevant. Johnson organizes her chapters based on specific areas of home or life (kitchen, office, kids' rooms, travel etc), making it easy to skip to the most pertinent section. At the end of the book, she includes a variety of resources to help transition towards zero waste.

Unlike other books on the same topic, "Zero Waste Home" neither focuses on statistics nor discusses the impact of excessive waste in detail. Instead, it provides practical, actionable advice on incorporating meaningful changes into our personal lives.

I really enjoyed this book - I liked how the author jumped into the zero waste lifestyle with both feet and then came to the realization that she needed to create a balance that would work within her life i.e. buying yogurt or cheese instead of making them from scratch. I did read some criticisms of this book that the author was too pretentious about her lifestyle choices and that they were unrealistic for most. However, I think Bea really pushed the point that you have to do what works for you, and that will be different for everyone. This book was about her journey to a zero waste lifestyle and I found it inspiring.

Simple, easy to read and understand: you can start at any chapter and declutter your own place right away, at your own speed.

A good book to start a simplier lifestyle.

Her tricks are good ones, eventhough sometimes I felt like I was already doing some of them without doing these things out of an environmental issue (more economical one).

Many reasons can push you toward a simplier lifestyle and this book tells a way to do it while keeping an environmental question up front: how could I do the same things as usual and reduce my waste (you'll either do differently or do without).

This book is a must read for anyone looking for practical solutions towards a zero waste home. Bea is humble and inspiring rather than preachy, and I loved the very practical suggestions about shopping bulk, shopping with cloth bags and jars, packing a lunch or picnic without plastic, and composting. I plan to incorporate several of the suggestions form this book into my life--starting with ditching the paper towels!

I loved reading this book. I finished it in 2 days as I could not put it down. Clearly the author has been perfecting her art over years of practice and some of the ideas might seem far fetched as a "common consumer" but it gave me many ideas and sparked a bunch of projects for my household. Truly a life-changing read for the aspiring green people.

Once you read the first few chapters the book seems to repeat itself. I did find some useful tips with this book though.
