Hello All! I just wanted to post this amazing video I found about a family that is really putting their money where their mouth is. While not all of us can commit to this level of commitment, it is a goal that we can strive for. By doing this we are fighting back and doing our part to help turn the tides against overconsumption and waste. Give it a go today! Even if it is just one thing.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars…” -Les Brown
Since embarking on this lifestyle, Bea Johnson says that her life and that of her family has completely changed…for the better. They feel happier and lead more meaningful lives, based on experiences instead of stuff, and action instead of inaction. On her blog, Zero Waste Home, she shares the incredible health, financial and time saving benefits they gain from their zero waste lifestyle. “Get your 5Rs right: Refuse what you do not need, Reduce what you do need, Reuse what you consume, Recycle what you cannot Refuse, Reduce or Reuse, and Rot (Compost) the rest”.
I think I can learn a thing or two from the Johnsons. As with all matters of eco friendly pursuit, one small step at a time adds up to many miles! Check out her website: Zero Waste Home
