- Ted Talk Video: Two adults, two kids, zero waste | Bea Johnson
Since 2008, Bea Johnson and her family are dedicated to living a zero-waste lifestyle; they generate a mere quart size jar of waste per year. Through her blog and her book Zero Waste Home, Bea launched a global movement.
She shatters misconceptions, proving that zero waste can not only be “stylish,” but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings.
