ENDING A RUBBISH LIFESTYLE
When a ripped beanbag spewed thousands of polystyrene balls into her garden, Kate Hughes decided to break away from the throwaway society.
Her family of four went 100% green. They ditched plastic, cooked all meals from scratch, made their own cleaning agents, and bought second-hand clothes and washed them naturally. They then went deeper – switching their household power, personal finance, and car.
They have achieved ‘zero waste’: sending nothing to landfill. Now they are going even further.
Told with refreshing humility and humour, this inspiring story shows that a well-lived life doesn’t have to be wrapped in plastic.
