Talk: Zero Waste Home

Bea Johnson will talk about her life-changing experiences in waste-free living, which is not about recycling more, but less. Since 2008, Bea Johnson and her family are dedicated to living a zero waste lifestyle; they generate a mere quart size jar of waste per year. Through her blog and with her book Zero Waste Home, Bea has launched a global movement and continues to inspire a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste with the application of the 5R's: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot.
