A walk down Bea Johnson's Path to Sustainable Living.
Bea has managed to reduce her family's garbage YEARLY output to the mason jar. She does this by generally buying in bulk and using her own glass or cloth containers.
This is truly impressive and a example to try and follow. While I have reduced the waste, that goes to landfills, in my home to about 2-3 garbage bags a year, I do end up with a LOT of packaging that must be recycled each week. I will buy her book and try to start incorporating some of her ideas in my lifestyle going forward.
