If you haven’t heard of Bea Johnson and her zero waste home then you’re in for a treat. Bea is a huge inspiration to me. Her family is the same size as mine and she is very successful at being zero waste. It`s people like her that keep me trying to reduce my waste. I first read about her in an article from Sunset Magazine http://www.sunset.com/home/natural-home/zero-waste-home-0111-00418000069984/ . The comments (680 at last count) were so incredible. People either loved what she was doing or thought she was ruining her kids lives. She hasn’t let the negative feedback get her down or affect her journey though. Bea promotes Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot (and only in that order). That makes sense to me. Here is Bea’s website – http://zerowastehome.blogspot.ca/. It’s worth a visit for a little inspiration!
“In the past, it was possible to destroy a village, a town, a region, even a country. Now it is the whole planet that has come under threat. This fact should compel everyone to face a basic moral consideration; from now on, it is only through a conscious choice and then deliberate policy that humanity will survive.”
