Description

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 40 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.

Ce que les critiques en disent

" 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)

Some good ideas some not.

Some great ideas for cutting waste, but recommending i get rid of things and replace them with more sustainable goods? Why would you not wear out items you already own. Manufacturing has its own footprint. Use what you have! Replace as needed with more waste free alternatives. Future purchases given more thought, but use what you already have first.

Inspiring

Another book I'm going to have to buy in hard copy.

I think some of her changes are a little extreme, and frankly the opposite of simplifying anything, but I've been working towards reducing my negative environmental impact for a while and I know there's more I can do. It's difficult living in a condo without outdoor space, and not being rich like the author's family, but there are lots of good tips here.

Practical and unconventional. Not superficial.

Didn't particularly grip me at start but as it progressed and started to get down into practical suggestions, how-to's and very relatable situations, it got much more interesting to my pleasant surprise. I'm glad it wasn't overly superficial. I've bookmarked several sections and I'll certainly be referencing back to these areas in future. I'm very happy to have read this book.

Informative, and Important for All Ages!

This audio book was fantastic! I have always had a place in my heart for the environment and simple living, but grew up in a home where buying was #1. It felt wrong and I felt off every time a new thing was brought into the home. When I got married and left home, I felt as though that weight was lifted!

My husband is not as diligent as myself with things such as composting for example, however he agrees there is no since in buying poor quality items, or items we don't need.

Thank you for all of the knowledge, and thorough explanations on this topic!

Okay, but not as an audiobook

I didn’t the middle of this book, decent content with only slight “judging” from the author. It was a little hard to start however, as this book is mostly lists. Sounds like there is supposed to be a picture or two to go along with some descriptions, but being an audiobook you can’t see the pictures.

An hour left of the book and I couldn’t finish anymore thanks to the narrator’s voice. I might recommend the book, but won’t recommend it as an audiobook.

Not so modest living.

Great ideas, but too much opinion which dragged on. I felt like she was telling me how to live my life through a lot of it. She also said a 4000 sq ft house was modest, so much privilege is assumed.

Best Read By Book

What did you like best about Zero Waste Home? What did you like least?

I loved all the tips she shared! It was all very helpful and informative and encouraging to get started on my zero waste journey. However, it was difficult to stay focused because I wanted to see the many lists she had. I will buy the physical book so I can have all the recipes and ideas at my fingertips, then pass along to a friend.

One of the best books Ive ever read/listened to...

I almost want to listen to it again. Loved the narrator. It starts a tad rough, I wasnt sure I was going to like her. But I enjoyed her full pronunciation of words and clear speech. This book goes beyond others on this topic. The author talks about things that didnt work, the hardships of living zero waste, and the emotions she feels now. I enjoyed the recipes. And above all, the lesson shopping is voting will stay with me for a very long time.

This will def be a book that I read again &/or refer to!

Anyone who is looking for ideas on how to reduce their carbon footprint- this book is for you! If you need motivation on cleaning out your house &/or living a more minimalist life- this book is for you!
There were a few times that the audiobook kept in reading mistakes but it didn’t really bother me any or interfere with the understanding or enjoyment of the read.

Lost Me When She Became Specific

I liked the beginning, when philosophy was in action, but I was not interested in the specifics, i.e. all the small ways one can be waste-free (which others may find intriguing). Maybe later, I'll dwell on the philosophical for now.

Fantastic content

Fabulous book. The performance was at times spotty, having odd noises at times and repeated sentences or parts of sentences, but don't let that stop you from reading this extremely practical and perspective-shifting book!

I’ve been on this journey for a couple years and am still learning! I love to hear others finding solutions to problems and I learned a significant amount from this book. Great read! Well... Great listen. 😂

A great guide to starting a zero-waste lifestyle

The narration had some editing issues, and perhaps a French narrator would have better suited for this book since the author’s French nationality was an important point in the book. Bea thoroughly explained every step and aspect readers needed in order to start their own zero-waste journey. I also appreciated that she addressed of her own privilege in accessibility, and how she incorporated realistic and affordable ways to be truly zero-waste without buying into greenwashing. I definitely plan to purchase a physical book to more easily share with friends, and use as a reference when tackling specific topics (and recipes!)
