Stephanie Potter interviews Amy Korst, author of The Zero-Waste Lifestyle: Live Well by Throwing Away Less, and creator of www.GreenGarbageProject.com. Amy and her husband launched the Green Garbage Project to see if they could live trash-free for an entire year, and they managed to produce less trash (just four pounds!) than most Americans do in a day. In her book, Korst helps readers foster a pioneering spirit with tips on making what they need at home, buying less, saving more, and living a healthier life. She also shares information on the global Zero Waste movement, and the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility which would hold product manufacturers financially responsible for disposing of their products and packaging after use.
