When I first read about Béa Johnson and her family in Sunset magazine's article The Zero-Waste Home, I was beyond inspired by her mantra to "refuse, refuse, refuse, and then reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot." It led to my Living with Less project and has made me question the necessity of every item I bring into our home, especially those in packaging. Read on for related links.
What an inspiring family! This video really answered a lot of the questions we all had about their processes and showed the sincerity and intelligence of their choices. And my favorite part: Béa's "creativity is being fed by finding alternatives for zero waste."
