Talk | The Zero Waste Home: Bea Johnson

This event has finished

Auditorium, Level -2

In English

In conjunction with the exhibition Let’s Talk About the Weather, author of Zero Waste Home (2013) Bea Johnson shares her tribulations and secrets to achieving Zero Waste. She covers the importance of applying her 5R's in order (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot) and shatters misconceptions about the zero waste lifestyle, proving that it can be "stylish” as well as lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings. Her approach brings an intimidating topic down to a manageable scale, making Zero Waste less daunting by providing many practical solutions to living simply and reducing waste.

With her book Zero Waste Home (translated in 11 languages), Bea Johnson launched a global movement and inspires a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste. She has spoken and appeared on various TV shows and publications all over the world, and has become a spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle.
