Get beyond the Mason jar and learn how to dramatically reduce the waste you produce over the course of a year-one sanity-saving step at a time-in this super-practical guide from the creator of The Zero Waste Collective.
Say goodbye to your bursting toiletries bag, fast fashion, and all the plastic crowding your pantry. It's time to build less trashy habits for a more sustainable and ethical life. With relatable stories, compassion, and a realistic perspective, Tara McKenna will show you how in this ultimate guide to going zero waste(ish).
We're all trapped in a wasteful convenience-based cycle, but Don't Be Trashy offers an alternative: an approach to reducing waste that emphasizes progress over perfection. McKenna guides you month by month through a year of reducing consumption, covering:
• Decluttering and turning off the flow of stuff into your home
• Breaking up with fast fashion and developing a capsule wardrobe
• Cutting off your supply of single-use plastic in your kitchen, cleaning supplies, and bathroom
• Investing in home goods that'll last for decades without breaking the bank
• And more!
Ultimately, it's about changing your mindset to one of minimalism and conscious consumption-a mindset that's as good for your wallet and your well-being as it is for the planet. Don't Be Trashy will guide you to your best life-one with less waste and more joy!
