The world, especially its oceans, is becoming a trash heap. Food containers and other excess packaging are filling our landfills and are not composting. Don’t Be Trashy gives all kinds of advice to reduce your family’s carbon footprint, while also significantly decluttering your home.
Does anyone else feel smothered by the amount of goods that are in your home? Are you sick of taking out bags and bags of empty packaging for food, cleaning supplies, and beauty products? Are you concerned about possibly toxic chemicals in your home? Don’t Be Trashy addresses all of these issues within its pages.
Personally, I’ve already implemented some of the suggestions. I’ve replaced plastic water bottles with glass. I’ve been buying grains, beans, and candy in bulk at my local market. I’m even thinking of composting (though it is too cold outside to start it now). Don’t Be Trashy provides some easy ways to slow down climate change that you can do in your own home. 4 stars!
