I want to reduce my carbon footprint and stop wasting so many things, so I picked up this book There are tons of examples in this book of how to accomplish this Some are easier than others The author was not preachy which I liked She understood that some things were not for everyone That anything you do to produce less waste is a victory She did bring to my attention things that I really did no think about, For example, we all buys things that we only use once and throw away We should stop doing that PERIOD All the paper plates and paper towels, just for convenience sake There is a help list at the end of the book that gives examples of things we can use in place of easily disposable items Other tips Shia Su mentioned that we should attempted to do is buy things in bulk, change our diet to accommodate less waste, use cloth bags instead of plastic bags, and This starts off fairly strong, and there is some genuinely good advice in here appreciate the shout out to local co ops Seriously, I love going to the co op and checking out the bulk section But then it gets very weird Between the bragging about how she has odorless sweat, encouraging people to add essential oils to their homemade toothpaste aren t you not supposed to ingest essential oils , and some lackluster science writing T O X I N S my dude this goes off the rails. ☆ Zero Waste: Weniger Müll ist das neue Grün ✓ I ve been wanting to get into a zero waste lifestyle for awhile now, and this book has given me the push to actually go through with it I was just browsing Barnes and Noble with my mom and she came across this book and pointed it out to me She and I have been going on a small sustainability journey together, so the title stood out to her I immediately had to have it, and here we are.

There were some amazing tips and recipes throughout this book and I plan on doing a reread of it when I get back home for Christmas break I think it s a super amazing book to be able to flip through and reread. I highly recommend this book to you if you re at all interested in a eco fri A pleasant read to get started in the Zero waste concept. The author digs quite deep on two of the Rs of sustainability Reduce and Reuse The book is heavily based on the recipes, tips, and tricks that make it very practical for those who would like to reduce the amount of waste drastically in daily life Some tips strongly depend on the context of living and available infrastructure but, all in all, everyone can find something useful.

Visually appealing and full of practical and realistic tips.
