Zero Waste for Families: A Practical Guide is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow book that will help both families and anyone else wanting to go greener. Going completely zero waste (no trash to speak of) may seem daunting or even impossible for the everyday consumer but taking it step-by-step can make a huge difference to the world if each person plays their part. Fredrika Syren became concerned about climate change after she had children in 2006, but began concentrating on zero waste in 2015 by focusing on a sustainable, minimalist lifestyle that was plant-based. She emphasizes the 5 Rs of zero waste: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Rot, and Recycle.
Fredrika Syren writes from experience by outlining what works for her family. Simple advice ranges from going to the local farmers' market, buying in bulk, making your own cleaning supplies and beauty products, growing your food, and making compost. Included are many recipes for the items and products she discusses, which was helpful to me as a reader interested to learn. I always considered making compost for the garden and this book caught my eye and inspired me to take a step closer to making it a reality. I highly recommend Zero Waste for Families to everyone as the tips and advice are practical to implement. The best part of all is that by saving the planet, readers can also save a lot of money along the way, which is a win-win situation.
