This is How You Can Make the World Better at Home


This is How You Can Reduce Waste at Home 

By Helen O'Keeffe

Zero waste homes is an environmental drive developed by French lady Bea Johnson whereby she strives to cut her household waste to that of a glass jar annually. While it might sound extreme, Ms. Johnson believes that this is inherently possible with some education and knowledge on how to change our behaviors in our home. Being environmentally aware and conscious is a hot topic in today's world and so it's something that many people are very interested in. Ms. Johnson, who now resides in the USA with her family, has travelled the world speaking on the topic, she has published blogs and books about it and continues to receive a captive audience. While achieving zero waste might seem difficult for the average household, the premise that we can all "do better" in terms of our waste output probably does have weight and even small changes can make a difference when we strive for them collectively.

The infographic below from the guys at EZ Living Interiors outlines everything you need to know about the "zero waste" concept. It breaks it down providing ideas of how you can attempt to implement this into your lifestyle; it details why it's important and it also gives further background to its overall origins...plus lots more! Check out the full graphic below for all the details.

  1. Advanced rules: I buy used handsets to minimize the environmental impact of phone manufacturing, and since my information is backed up, I can use my phone until its last gasp. I’m not scared.

  2. One of the simplest ways to decrease the amount of waste you produce is to use reusable bags while shopping. Instead of relying on your supermarket’s plastic bags, bring your own cloth ones to pack up your items and tote them home. In addition to material waste, food waste is a huge problem in American households. However, it’s entirely preventable if the consumer follows one simple rule: only buy groceries that you know will eat. eco store adelaide
