Zero Waste

For the sake of our children, species, and world, we should all pursue Zero Waste. It is the ethical thing to do. We have been given a beautiful world and it is up to us to take care of it. Otherwise mother nature will have her revenge eventually and our kids will suffer: Global Warming, Pollution, Disease, Famine, and War. Oil will run out plus it causes global warming -- best to leave fossil fuels in the ground. Plastics (also from oil) are killing our oceans...



Here are some great Zero Waste resources.

The Best Books I've found (please borrow from your library or get electronic editions):
  • No Impact Man by Colin Beavan
  • Plastic Free by Beth Terry
  • Zero Waste Home by Bea Johnson
  • The Zero-Waste Lifestyle: Live Well by Throwing Away Less by Amy Korst
  • Detrash Your Life in 90 Days: Your Complete Guide to the Art of Zero Waste Living by Katie Patrick
Websites and Blogs:
You can read about my own journey and discoveries on the way to Zero Waste at http://ecopractice.blogspot.com

Zero Waste is a goal and a journey. Don't worry about perfection, just do the best that you can and keep working at it.

Thanks for reading and taking care of each other and our planet!
