This book is one family’s guide to reducing waste in our lives. It’s not judgemental; they’re not telling us what to do. They are just giving us the information, advice, recipes and projects we’ll need to start making change. They explore every aspect of our homes and provide us with simple, practical ideas for reducing waste and finding or creating alternatives—from making staples from scratch, buying food with no packaging, making your own personal care products, growing your own food, to sewing and mending clothes.You can choose the recipes and projects that suit you, whether it be to make your own toothpaste, bottle up your own tomato sauce, make your own dishwashing powder or share your waste-free ideas with others. With beautiful photography and design, this book gives you both the inspiration and the information to make a start right now.
