I just finished reading Zero Waste Home by Bea Johnson.
A guide for simplifying your life by reducing waste. For me the principles I'll remember most from the book are the 5 R's. Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot. In some ways the most difficult of these is the first, especially in relation to freebies. I was most struck by this when I went to the supermarket during a special event, there we were offered various samples in plastic throw away cups. I would like to say I remained strong in the face of temptation, but the mini yoghurts and smoothies were too enticing, and on Bea Johnsons first R's I failed. Oh well next time I'll try again. I really enjoyed this practical book with it offering new ways at looking how to reduce wasteage in the home and as a result simplifiying life in the home.
Such a good read and I was able to order the book from the library!
