✏Zero Waste Learning More about Zero Waste and Saying No to Plastics Book Summary : Table of Contents Introduction Waking up to the Hazards of Plastic DIY projects– shopping bags Old Jeans Shopping Bag A bit about the Concept of Recycling Making a No Plastic Kitchen The idea of Bulk Buying No Plastic No Waste Home Meal Delivery System Making your own natural traditional containers – eating utensils – round the world trip! Calabash bowl Becoming a Zero Waste Zorro Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Six years ago, the administration in our city decided that there was going to be a complete ban on plastics, as far as shopping bags and food packaging, in local industries and enterprises were concerned. This decision was hailed in the press and approved by the public, but the business section seemed to be disturbed. How would they do without plastics? Especially for packing/storage, and other purposes? That was six years ago and as it happens in a city where the enforcement is not done strictly, the saying no to plastics idea slowly and steadily went back into limbo, and back everybody went to plastic containers, plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic jars, because after all it was a multibillion dollar industry, it had managed to permeate all over the world, and no silly small city administration was going to implement their own airy fairy arbitrary decisions when the big bucks were out in full force. About 30 years ago, my mother started up a one lady campaign of saying no to plastic, because she had already seen these plastic bags choking up the rivers of her mountain state. And when she told people that they were not biodegradable and they would never decompose like natural products are going to do, she got looks of “lady, going senile, so humor her and listen to what she has to say, with a poker face.” And that was the time when she decided that her house was going to be 0 garbage & 0 waste house, the concept of which had not been thought by anybody except the more knowledgeable of environmentalists, who the rest of society called totally weird and crazy.

✏The Zero Waste Solution Book Summary : Waste is something we all make every day but often pay little attention to. That's changing, and model programs around the globe show the many different ways a community can strive for, and achieve, zero-waste status. Scientist-turned-activist Paul Connett, a leading international figure in decades-long battles to fight pollution, has championed efforts to curtail overconsumption and keep industrial toxins out of our air and drinking water and bodies. But he’s best known around the world for leading efforts to help communities deal with their waste in sustainable ways—in other words, to eliminate and reuse waste rather than burn it or stow it away in landfills. In The Zero Waste Solution, Connett profiles the most successful zero-waste initiatives around the world, showing activists, planners, and entrepreneurs how to re-envision their community’s waste-handling process—by consuming less, turning organic waste into compost, recycling, reusing other waste, demanding nonwasteful product design, and creating jobs and bringing community members together in the process. The book also exposes the greenwashing behind renewed efforts to promote waste incinerators as safe, nontoxic energy suppliers, and gives detailed information on how communities can battle incineration projects that, even at their best, emit dangerous particles into the atmosphere, many of which remain unregulated or poorly regulated. An important toolkit for anyone interested in creating sustainable communities, generating secure local jobs, and keeping toxic alternatives at bay.

✏Waste Not Book Summary :

'This is a much-needed guidebook from a true agent of change.’ Sarah Wilson

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. Each year Australian households produce enough rubbish 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.
 
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!)

Drawing from lessons she learned during a yearlong experiment in zero-waste living, Amy outlines hundreds of easy ideas—from the simple to the radical—for consuming and throwing away less, with low-impact tips on the best ways to: • Buy eggs from a local farm instead of the grocery store • Start a worm bin for composting • Grow your own loofah sponges and mix up eco-friendly cleaning solutions • Purchase gently used items and donate them when you’re finished • Shop the bulk aisle and keep reusable bags in your purse or car • Bring your own containers for take-out or restaurant leftovers By eliminating unnecessary items in every aspect of your life, these meaningful and achievable strategies will help you save time and money, support local businesses, decrease litter, reduce your toxic exposure, eat well, become more self-sufficient, and preserve the planet for future generations.

✏Green Home Building Book Summary : According to conventional wisdom, building a green home is an expensive endeavor. The standard approach treats green as an add-on, tacking "premium" products, finishes, and equipment onto a traditional home design. As a result, many green home projects end up over budget or fail to achieve their environmental and performance goals. Green Home Building explodes the myth that green homes have to cost more. Using proven methods based on applied building science, the authors show how to: * Lower base construction costs to provide funding for high performance upgrades * Achieve a net-zero energy home, including "zero-ing" water, waste, carbon, and associated costs within fifteen years * Live affordably into the future, despite anticipated rising costs for fuel, water, materials, taxes, and health care This comprehensive guide to building green on any budget defines the strategies that maximize the return on green investments. Written for anyone who has ever been swayed by the argument that the price tag limits how green a home can be, Green Home Building is a must-read for builders, contractors, architects, designers, and homeowners. Miki Cook is a green building and sustainability consultant who has dedicated her career to educating contractors and the public on the strategies, methods, and benefits of green homes. Doug Garrett has trained thousands of homebuilders, architects, and sub-contractors to build energy-efficient homes using applied building science to improve comfort, durability, and healthfulness while meeting or exceeding the energy code.
