Publisher’s Description: 

Go beyond the mason jar and learn how to go (almost) zero waste in one year, in this super-practical and accessible guide from the creator of the Zero Waste Collective.

By 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish, by weight. Scary, right? That's why it's time to stop being so trashy. We're all trapped in a convenience-based and wasteful cycle, but Tara McKenna offers an alternative: an approach to reducing waste for a more sustainable and ethical life that emphasizes progress over perfection. This isn't about fitting all of your waste into a mason jar or going zero waste overnight. For real, long-lasting change and new habits to form, McKenna guides you through a year of reducing waste, month by month, with focuses ranging from decluttering and developing a capsule wardrobe to revamping your kitchen, pantry, and bathroom--slowly!--to cut off your supply of single-use plastic and invest in home goods that'll last for decades. Ultimately, it's about changing your mindset to one of conscious consumption--a mindset that, coincidentally, will be good for your wallet in the long term.

Say goodbye to a bursting toiletries bag, fast fashion, and all the plastic bottles crowding your pantry. It's time to build less trashy habits. With relatable stories, compassion, and a practical approach, Tara McKenna will show you how in this ultimate guide to going zero waste(ish).
