I am beyond excited to share this third and final family project with you, which was definitely the biggest, most profound challenge of all. Following the end of the official No Garbage Year, I’ve continued to research and uncover still more unbelievable facts about what really happens to our garbage, our recycling, and our disposable plastics. Here is the back cover description of the book:
In this book Eve O. Schaub, humorist and stunt memoirist extraordinaire, tackles her most difficult challenge to date: garbage. Convincing her husband and two daughters to go along with her, Schaub attempts the seemingly impossible: living in the modern world without creating any trash at all. For an entire year. And- as it turns out- during a pandemic.
In the process, Schaub learns some startling things: that modern recycling is broken, and single stream recycling is a lie. That flushable wipes aren’t flushable and compostables aren’t compostable. That plastic drives climate change, fosters racism, and is poisoning the environment and our bodies at alarming rates, as microplastics are being found everywhere, from the top of Mount Everest to the placenta of unborn babies.
Year of No Garbage is Super Size Me meets the environmental movement. If you’ve ever thought twice about that plastic straw in your drink, you’re going to want to read this book.
