The Zero-Waste Home gives a great tour of the Johnson abode, highlighting the benefits of living with less to reduce waste:
- The kitchen is free of all packaging—from the pantry to the refrigerator and freezer. Drawers are uncluttered while countertop space isn't consumed by bulky paper towels.
- Closets are organized and sparse: Limiting the articles of clothing they own, Béa caps out at 6 pairs of shoes, 7 tops, 7 pants, and 2 skirts. The couple has also adopted the habit of only shopping twice a year at a thrift store to "replace items that are stained, worn, or outgrown."
