'This is a much-needed guidebook from a true agent of change.' Sarah Wilson The one book you need to reduce waste at home and in everyday life.  We need to talk about waste. Shrink-wrapped vegies, disposable coffee cups, clothes and electronics designed to be upgraded every year: we are surrounded by stuff that we often use once and then throw away. Globally, many individual households produce enough rubbish to fill a three-bedroom home every year. This includes thousands of dollars worth of food and an ever-increasing amount of plastic, which takes hundreds of years to break down and often ends up in our oceans or our food chain.   But what to do about such a huge problem? Is it just the price we pay for the conveniences of modern life? What if it were possible to have it both ways - to live a modern life with less waste?   That's where Erin Rhoads, aka The Rogue Ginger, comes in. Erin went from eating plastic-packaged takeaway while shopping online for fast fashion, to becoming one of Australia's leading eco-bloggers. Erin knows that small changes can have a big impact. In Waste Notshe shares everything she's learnt from her own funny, inspiring - and far-from-perfect - journey to living with less waste, to help you tackle your own war on waste.    Learn how to: switch out the disposable plastics from your shopping trolley make simple cleaning solutions free from harmful chemicals find your favourite beauty products without all the packaging give a baby shower present that won't end up in the charity shop bag plan your own zero-waste wedding (and what 'zero waste' even means!)  Edited, produced and printed using low-waste principles on sustainably sourced paper with soy inks… (más)

Best for:
Anyone looking for ways to to reduce their waste across multiple areas of their life and home.

In a nutshell:
Author Rhoads provides tips, suggestions, examples, and recipes for ways we can make more things ourselves and rely less on single-use items.

Worth quoting:
N/A

Why I chose it:
I was at an exhibition about food growth, distribution, and waste, and they were selling this book.

Review:
This book is great for its genre. It’s not oblivious to the benefits of plastic (the section on medicine is basically ‘plastic saves lives’); it just wants to give you a whole lot of tools that you can use to reduce plastic’s presence in your life.

The book is broken up into a few sections: tools, tips, and tricks. The Tips section is broken into areas: kitchen and food, cleaning and care, beauty and body, entertaining and events, and little people and furry friends. It also provides suggestions for how to waste less when traveling.

Right now I find myself hyper focused specifically on food waste. We are relying primarily on grocery delivery because our local shops are so small that its hard to keep the appropriate social distance. We’re a small household (two humans, two animals), so some of the produce boxes mean we end up with a couple of items that go bad before we can eat them because we haven’t been great about learning how to preserve / freeze / use up items. I think this book will be helpful in that way in the near term,; as we start to shift our lives to whatever the new normal is, I’ll be able to incorporate more of the tips into other areas of my life.
