Great tips for saving money and reducing waste!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book with tons of practical advice on reducing waste. Very glad I bought it. I'm happy to say that by following the tips in this book I've saved a decent amount of money and have definitely reduced my family's impact on the environment. And, after putting it off for ages, I finally got my kitchen organised!! I recommend this book for anyone who cares about the environment and wants to keep household bills to a minimum!

Very Helpful!!

Any additional comments?

LOVED THIS! Yet another superb work by Kate Anderson! Avoiding waste have always been my will and this book has not only enabled me to achieve this but to save money as well in the process. I love making the environment better and the book was of great assistance. The book does not stress an immediate turnaround, instead constant little efforts are encouraged which ends up making a big difference at the end.

The ideas presented by Kate were easy to comprehend and implement. I have shared most of the tips with my family and we are now nearing zero waste by implementing the 3 R’s concept. In the past, I was not much into the idea of recycling but this book has taught me how to make use of my waste positively. Can’t wait to see my home become a fully Zero Waste Home. Don’t be left out, get your copy now! Highly recommend to all.

Great value for money and I learnt a lot

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely. Because it got to the point very very quickly which for me was to cut down on clutter and waste, help save the environment and help save money. The book definitely achieved all 3, in particular saving money.

Any additional comments?

Really informative listen. Great value for money and for the point very quickly. I am very pleased with my purchase and have already recommended it to other people.

Helpful, practical, realistic

Any additional comments?

Great narration for this one. Wasn’t sure if this sort of book would work in audio, but i definitely prefer the audio version (I have it on kindle too). Good value for money and it has already given me plenty of unique tips and advice for getting rid of waste around my home and for saving money, with the added rather obvious bonus of helping the environment and my local community!

Money saving mode, ON!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Zero Waste Home to be better than the print version?

Well because of the ease of listening, I would have to say yes, and partially because of the friendliness of Annette Martin as well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zero Waste Home?

I think the part where I was told to shake it off piece by piece helped me out a lot.

Have you listened to any of Annette Martin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven''t yet grabbed a look at any other narration from her but if others are as good as this one, I think she deserves an applaud and a purchase too.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Well I was sad at first looking at the amount of waste I have but in the long run, yeah I'm happy, I'm happy that I had something to learn.

Any additional comments?

This book is a piece of heaven gifted on to me. I really treasure it in my eyes. I am going to adhere too much now and make sure I cut off on those beefy expenses. Thanks for writing this amazing book,Kate Anderson.

A little dated, some good ideas

Some good ideas in this short title, but it's a bit dated and doesn't work very well as an audiobook - there are lots of lists of things. I found it best when I listened in a setting where I could note down the ideas which struck a chord.

Very basic content

I was hoping for recipes for cleaning and beauty products but there was hardly anything. If you are already concerned about waste, I would be surprised if anything in this book was new to you.

Reduce waste and save money big time

This audio book is one of the best from Kate Anderson. It gives us 101 tips and tricks to reduce waste to maintain a clean environment and at the same time make huge savings in our wallets. First and foremost the author tells us 22 ways of reducing waste in the kitchen. The kitchen being place where household waste is generated from. It is better to buy only the ingredients you can use and finish up rather than buying many ingredients and end up not using all then leaving the rest to spoil.
She tells us to plan our meals around the ingredients available. This is a very great masterpiece from this author. This is highly recommended to everyone.

Great book, zero messing about. very positive

Any additional comments?

So many homes are wasting money, destroying the environment and having a house full of clutter and waste. This was something that had been concerning me for a while as I have recently become a father. This book helped me a lot with great advice and tips on how to manage this problem. Good narration too and I was glad the book was not too long, as it got to the point pretty quickly which is what I wanted.

Educational, money saving, environmentally fab!

Any additional comments?

It is quite horrifying how much waste we all go thru, which creates so much mess, cost and environmental damage. I had looked up various ways to reduce this waste but this is the first book to really give me good solid advice which, most importantly, was easy and free to implement. Really good stuff!

Simple and Effective!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants to reduce waste and save money. There are a lot of great ideas in this book and I think anyone would find it very useful.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Zero Waste Home?

Using my used coffee grounds instead of baking soda to keep the fridge and bathroom smelling fresh!

Much better than expected

Would you listen to The Zero Waste Home again? Why?

I already have, because quite a lot of info is packed into it, so takes time to digest.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Huh?

Have you listened to any of Annette Martin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never heard her before but i liked the narration a lot!

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

YES! Probably half the book has already been implemented and the rest i am slowly testing out now.

Any additional comments?

Very easy to follow, very easy to understand...exactly how a book of this nature should be.

Already found our house has reduced a LOT of waste and rubbish and nonsense with the added, and quite unexpected, bonus that we seem to have saved a lot of money already.

Happy with this book!

Money saving mode, ON!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Why of course yes. Anyone who's going through some rough patches deserve to have a look at it, it is made for them and I already gave it to a relative of mine.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well the book wasn't supposed to have any "characters" as it's more of a guide than a narrative book but still, Annette Martin has done a wonderful job here indeed.

Have you listened to any of Annette Martin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven''t yet grabbed a look at any other narration from her but if others are as good as this one, I think she deserves an applaud and a purchase too.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Zero Waste Home?

I think the part where I was told to shake it off piece by piece helped me out a lot and I will definitely try it out.

informative and useful information

Would you consider the audio edition of The Zero Waste Home to be better than the print version?

I like the audio version more than any kind of print version because you can close your eyes and envision what is being read to you. I find it easier to picture things when things are read to me, and if you want to hear it again you can pick a chapter or go back 30 seconds.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the ideas and ways to save money by not creating a lot of waste which in the end helps the planet as well as your pocket. I feel like we are heading towards a future like in the movie "wall-e" where the world is filled with so much trash we are forced to leave the planet. Reducing the amount of products that can't be broken down and re used right away can help us not end up like that.

What about Annette Martin’s performance did you like?

I like how calm and soothing her voice is to listen to. She has such a relaxed voice and it's easy to listen to her and stay engaged in the topic.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wouldn't say it was an extreme reaction, just a very interested and happy, eager emotion to try and make a difference. It takes one person to start doing it to get friends and family on board also.

The fact that as well as creating a lot less mess around our house and therefore a lot more space - it saved us a lot of money!!!
