Bea Johnson

In this episode Bea Johnson and I discuss how to go from wanting to be a zero waste home to actually making it a reality. We chat about how we can turn one black dress into twenty-two different looks. Though we all may not decide to go “full” zero waste, Bea shares many big and small steps we can begin to take to reduce the amount of waste we generate everyday.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear an inspiring story of a modern, urban family who switched from “having all the things” to “having all the experiences.” It’s also great for anyone looking to learn about the big and small steps they can take to reduce their waste – in all its forms! In Zero Waste Home, Bea Johnson shares the story of how she simplified her life by reducing her waste.

Meet Bea Johnson

Since 2008, Bea Johnson and her family are dedicated to living a zero waste lifestyle; they produce a mere litre of waste per year. With her blog and bestseller Zero Waste Home (translated in 12 languages), Bea launched a global movement and continues to inspire a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste with the application of her 5R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot. She shatters misconceptions, proving that zero waste can not only be “stylish”, but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings.

She speaks at universities, corporate events and conferences all over the globe (100+ speeches in 16 countries, 5 continents), and has completed three international tours. She has appeared on TV shows and in publications everywhere, from The Today Show to BBC Breakfast. Passionate and optimist, she has become a guru for many and is a spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle or, as the New York Times stated, “The Priestess of Waste-Free Living”. She is a Grand Prize winner of The Green Awards, and a French native who currently lives in Mill Valley, California.
