As part of Plastic Free July, join us for an evening with world-renowned zero-waste advocate Bea Johnson.

Bea Johnson (a French native who currently lives in California) and her family adopted a zero-waste lifestyle more than a decade ago; their household now produces just a small jar of rubbish each year.

With her blog and bestselling book Zero Waste Home (translated into 17 languages), Bea launched a global zero-waste movement and continues to inspire a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste.

Her methodology is based on 5 Rs: “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot, and only in that order”.

Bea speaks at universities, corporate events and conferences all over the globe, including Google, Pixar, Adobe, the European Parliament and the United Nations.

Passionate and optimistic, she was dubbed “The Priestess of Waste-Free Living” by the New York Times and is arguably the world’s leading spokesperson for the zero-waste lifestyle.
