THE ZERO-WASTE LIFESTYLE

Amy Korst
Paperback

Price: $14.99

A practical guide to generating less waste, featuring meaningful and achievable strategies from the blogger behind The Green Garbage Project, a yearlong experiment in living garbage-free.

Trash is a big, dirty problem. The average American tosses out nearly 2,000 pounds of garbage every year that piles up in landfills and threatens our air and water quality. You do your part to reduce, reuse, and recycle, but is it enough?

In The Zero-Waste Lifestyle, Amy Korst shows you how to lead a healthier, happier, and more sustainable life by generating less garbage. Drawing from lessons she learned during a yearlong experiment in zero-waste living, Amy outlines hundreds of easy ideas—from the simple to the radical—for consuming and throwing away less, with low-impact tips on the best ways to:

  • Buy eggs from a local farm instead of the grocery store
  • Start a worm bin for composting
  • Grow your own loofah sponges and mix up eco-friendly cleaning solutions
  • Purchase gently used items and donate them when you’re finished
  • Shop the bulk aisle and keep reusable bags in your purse or car
  • Bring your own containers for take-out or restaurant leftovers

By eliminating unnecessary items in every aspect of your life, these meaningful and achievable strategies will help you save time and money, support local businesses, decrease litter, reduce your toxic exposure, eat well, become more self-sufficient, and preserve the planet for future generations.

Eat more whole plants. This simple recommendation is at the heart of a building consensus: The healthiest diet is a plant-based diet. Plants have spent millions of years evolving their defenses against disease. Now, studies indicate that by eating whole, minimally processed plant foods, humans too can gain protection … against everyday illness, diabetes, obesity, depression, mental decline, heart disease and even cancer.

In The Plant-Powered Diet, registered dietitian Sharon Palmer marshals the most up-to-date findings in nutrition to explain both why you should fill more of your plate with whole-plant foods and how to do so, whether you're a longtime vegan or a committed omnivore. Her book offers:

  • Essential information on the healthiest plant foods: whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and even herbs, spices, chocolate, coffee, tea, and wine
  • Advice for navigating the supermarket, kitchen, restaurant menus, on-the-go meals, exercise, and more
  • A 14-day meal plan, plus daily action alerts to get you started
  • 75 original plant-based recipes for every meal … all with complete nutritional data
The Plant-Powered Diet is not a diet you'll go on today and off tomorrow. It's a simple, satisfying and thoroughly delicious way of eating that can last your lifetime … and lengthen it.

When Sarah Matheny, creator of the popular blog Peas and Thank You, decided to eliminate animal products from her diet, she knew there'd be skeptics.
