Good Habit is a book of solutions. After recording 7 days of my waste, I decided to go completely waste free in order to observe healthy alternatives to my previous habits. Thus, this book is divided into 3 sections: Refuse, Reuse, and Rot. Refuse packaged goods, Reuse bags and containers, and Rot your leftover food scraps in a compost. Therefore, these sections focus on solutions that lead you to living a waste free life style, as well as personal excerpts about my week living waste free. This book is about hope; that it is possible to reduce your footprint on the environment by following those 3 simple steps.
