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 this book 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.

A French-born artist with a hugely popular blog on zero waste living, Bea Johnson has appeared on The Today Show, NBC and CBS news, and been featured in the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, People and Lianhe Zaobao (Singapore) and online publications, including Huffington Post and USA Today.
