Don't Be Trashy

A Practical Guide to Living with Less Waste and More Joy



Go beyond the Mason jar and learn new habits to go (almost) zero waste in one year with this super-practical guide from the creator of The Zero Waste Collective.

By 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish, by weight. Scary, right? That's why it's time to stop being so trashy.

We're all trapped in a convenience-based and wasteful cycle, but Tara McKenna offers an alternative: an approach to reducing waste for a more sustainable and ethical life that emphasizes progress over perfection. This isn't about fitting all of your waste into a Mason jar or going zero waste overnight. For real, long-lasting change that will enhance your life, McKenna guides you through a year of reducing waste, month by month, with lifestyle topics ranging from decluttering and developing a capsule wardrobe to streamlining your kitchen, pantry, and bathroom--slowly!--to significantly reduce the inflow of single-use plastics. This is an opportunity to become a more conscious consumer, as McKenna emphasizes the importance of a circular economy, and soon you’ll be investing in home goods that'll last for decades. Ultimately, it's about transitioning to a minimalist mindset--a mindset that, coincidentally, will be good for your wallet--and the planet--in the long term.

Are you ready to waste less and live more? Say goodbye to that bursting toiletries bag, fast fashion, and all the plastics crowding your pantry. It's time to build less trashy habits that fit in with the context of your life. With relatable stories, compassion, and a practical approach, Tara McKenna will show you how in this ultimate guide to going zero waste(ish).
