088: Bea Johnson: The Priestess of Waste-Free Living
Bea has become a role model, maybe even a hero to me.
People keep saying they’re impressed with my waste. It’s easy to allow your standards to slide.
One problem: my fellow Americans waste more than nearly anyone in human history. I don’t want to relax my cleanliness and integrity.
Bea has reduced waste for longer and has spoken more about it. She knows what works, what doesn’t, how to express it, and more.
Most of all, she enjoys it. Like anyone, she started with doubt and incredulity. She worked through the challenges, which shows that you can too.
In our conversation she shares what works, how to start, how to face and overcome challenges, and, most of all, how to enjoy living by your values. As with everyone who takes on the difficult challenge of choosing between a deep value and comfort and convenience, the choice improved her life.
You will find your life improves the same.
Listening to Bea will get you started.
