Zero Waste Living, the 80/20 Way

Written by Stephanie J. Miller

 OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  Make some easy changes to your life and experience the joy of zero waste living!  In this practical guide, Stephanie shares her approach to living an waste-free life. She was inspired by Bea Johnson’s book, Zero Waste Home and other experts.

The zero waste living movement promotes less consumption and waste in your daily life. As we all know, this idea is easier said than done. Stephanie decided to implement what the business world calls the 80/20 rule: the idea that majority of the results come from a few actions. Pondering the 80/20 rule and completing extensive research led her to three habits you can change to make a huge impact.  By focusing on food, purging plastics, and recycling right, you can make a serious impact and drastically reduce your waste.

Stephanie starts off chapter 1, “The Aha Moment,” with a quote by Ann-Marie Bonneau, Zero Waste Chef: “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”  Let Stephanie help you get started on your zero waste journey today!
