Book review: Waste Not

Words by Veronica Stanford

Every house needs one.

We all know how detrimental plastic is to the environment.

But even the thought of attempting to reduce our plastic consumption is a task that can seem really, really overwhelming. At a time when we’re finally beginning to see a shift in our dependence on the material, Erin Rhoads’ Waste Not should be present in every household.

Broken down into key areas – food, cleaning, beauty, entertaining and kids and pets – the compendium’s gone beyond just telling us why we need to reduce our waste, showing us how to do it without being unrealistic or over the top.

The pages are filled with DIY projects, recipes for homemade cleaning products and even ideas on waste-free gift wrapping. If you’re ready to make a dent in your waste consumption, this will be your bible.
