YEAR OF NO GARBAGE Recycling Lies, Plastic Problems, and One Woman's Trashy Journey to Zero Waste

by | Read by Hillary Huber

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Eve Schaub chronicles her family's ambitious undertaking to eliminate household waste for a year, which was made even more difficult by the Covid pandemic. Hillary Huber's tone of bemused humor matches the author's witty rendition of the many sacrifices her family made on their improbable journey to zero waste. The family sought out alternatives to many common products and processes, such as reusable toilet paper, menstrual products, toothpaste tubes, and packaging. Huber narrates with both astonishment and down-to-earth humor the author's discovery of the omnipresence of plastics and the near impossibility of eliminating it from one's life, including inside our very bodies. Also addressed is the false comfort of recycling programs that promise solutions but do not deliver. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
