practical guide to improving your life--and your impact on the world--in thirty
simple days by radically reducing waste without losing your lifestyle.
Overwhelmed by clutter, anxious about your environmental footprint, and looking
to make a change? You don't have to be a rocket scientist to reconfigure your
consumption--still, it doesn't hurt that Anita Vandyke is. A qualified engineer
and the eco-luxe lifestyle champion behind the popular zero-waste Instagram
@Rocket-Science, Anita Vandyke has made the change to a zero-waste life, and
through hands-on advice and charming illustrations, she shows us that with ease
and style, we can too.

By incorporating thirty simple rules one day at a time, A Zero Waste Life is a
manageable guide to forming a more conscientious, intentional life in just one
month. Offered inside is guidance for tackling waste and making ethical choices
when it comes to shopping, eating, travel, beauty, and more. With her signature
elegance and encouraging voice, Vandyke proves that we can stop depending on
plastics, tidy our homes, and clear the way for a cleaner future--and that when
we stop wasting, we start living.

When people hear of the conservationist lifestyle, it sounds idealistic and undesirable—a
life spent sacrificing conveniences and laboring over smelly compost. Not quite
so, according to stylish lifestyle expert, social influencer, and qualified
rocket scientist Anita Vandyke, whose popular Instagram (@Rocket_Science) documenting her hip, conservationist lifestyle has amassed more than 82,000 followers, and who is the author of the
upcoming, much anticipated, beautifully illustrated, and highly readable
guidebook A Zero Waste Life in Thirty Days.

Releasing just in time for Earth Day (April 22, 2020), A Zero Waste
Life in Thirty Days makes it easy—even convenient, fun, and envy

producing!—to become a conservationist. Inside, Vandyke elegantly and
encouragingly invites readers to follow a simple, manageable plan that will
incorporate sustainable techniques into their lives one day at a time over a
30-day period, and leave them with a more intentional, fulfilling, and
Earth-friendly lifestyle.

Vandyke focuses on incorporating practical ways to reduce waste, such as with:

  • food and shopping (become a better
    cook, reduce costs from packaging, and spend less eating out);
  • beauty and cleaning (DIY organic
    beauty and cleaning products to avoid toxins);
  • and recycling and composting (the
    basics and why it isn’t as daunting (or smelly!) as it seems).
Vandyke says quitting her corporate job helped her find her path, and that her financial
savviness during her “funemployment” is what led to a zero waste lifestyle. “I
don’t have all the answers to living a 100% zero waste life,” she says. “It’s a
goal, nothing more. I believe we can all be everyday activists and take little
steps to reduce our waste.
