Very easy to read and understand, written in an accessible way. The author clearly states that her life and circumstances are different from other people’s, and what she has access too not everyone else will.
4.5 stars.

As someone who is working to decrease their carbon footprint and work towards the goal of low/zero waste, I loved a lot of the recommendations, swaps and conversational tools provided in Shia Su's book. There's a lot of fantastic DIY options for sustainable swaps as well as some great food for thought regarding the plastic industry and how one person's difference CAN be enough.

I admire the author for her capacity to live in an eco-sensitive manner. I think few of us could equal what she does, but she gives enough solid tips on waste reduction that there is something available that all of us can do to reduce our personal ecological footprint without disturbing our routines very much.
