Zero Waste Lifestyle is an excellent guide to reducing your garbage output to virtually nil. While not many will be able to go the whole route, there are excellent suggestions for whatever level of recycling (and other methods of decreasing consumption) that you are comfortable with. An inspiring book, and it will probably save you money. ( )

I knew my husband would love to have this book and I plan to give this as a Christmas Gift. Sadly, my husband saw the book before I hid it. Good news, though - he is not a big reader. He always fall asleep just reading one page. This book had him reading from page 1 to a full chapter. He is still reading the book and tells me what he thinks about certain subjects. This is a first book he actually reading a whole chapter. Thank you so much!!!! BIG A PLUS!!! ( )

Each chapter presents easy steps that anyone can take to create less trash: from composting and retaking reusable containers to the grocery store to burning clean organic materials; upcycling, downcycling, and recycling goods; and more"--… (more)
