Shrink-wrapped veggies, 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. Each year the average household produces enough trash to fill a three-bedroom home, including 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 most popular eco-bloggers. Erin knows that small changes can have a big impact. In Waste Not she shares everything she's learnt from her own funny, inspiring--and far-from-perfect--journey to living with less waste. This practical reference book is split into three parts: Where to start; How to reduce waste at home and in life; and On the road (sustainable work, travel, and activism). Including genuinely accessible and easy tips, this book is perfect for both the novice and the eco-aware.
