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

The one book you need to reduce waste at home and in everyday life. 

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. Globally, many individual households produce enough rubbish to fill a three-bedroom home every year. This includes 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 leading eco-bloggers. Erin knows that small changes can have a big impact. In Waste Notshe shares everything she's learnt from her own funny, inspiring - and far-from-perfect - journey to living with less waste, to help you tackle your own war on 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!)
