Bea Johnson and her family adopted a zero waste lifestyle a decade ago; their household produces a mere pint of trash per year. With her blog and bestseller Zero Waste Home (translated in 20+ languages, #1 on Amazon waste category), Bea initiated a global movement and continues to inspire a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste. Her methodology is based on 5R's: “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot, and only in that order”. She shatters misconceptions, proving that zero waste can not only be stylish, but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings. She speaks at universities, corporate events and conferences all over the globe, including Google, Pixar, Adobe, TEDx, the European Parliament and the United Nations. She has completed eleven international tours and given talks in 35+ countries on 6 continents. She has appeared on TV shows and in publications everywhere, including The Today Show and People Magazine. Passionate and optimist, she was dubbed "The Priestess of Waste-Free Living" by the New York Times and is the leading spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle. She is a Grand Prize winner of The Green Awards, and a French native who currently lives in Mill Valley, California.
