For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to "refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot," the 5r's, Bea Johnson, the goddess of "Zero Waste" recommends. I have discovered that vinegar and baking soda can replace the 23 bottles of cleaning products in my house. The concept of a "Zero Waste Home," is a minimalist's dream. I am in heaven! Pretty soon I suspect I will be telling my partner we need to downsize, that our 1150 square foot house might be too big!
