ASHLAND – the Ashland Public Library’s Environmental Book Club will be reading Don’t Be Trashy for January 2023.

The discussion will take place on January 4, 2023 from 6;30 to 7;30 p.m. virtually.

We are all trapped in a wasteful convenience-based cycle, but Don’t Be Trashy offers an alternative: an approach to reducing waste that emphasizes progress over perfection

Author Tara McKenna guides you month by month through a year of reducing consumption, covering

1. Decluttering and turning off the flow of stuff into your home

2. Breaking up with Fast Fashion

3. Cutting off your supply of single-use plastic.

Ultimately, it’s about changing your mindset to one of minimalism and conscious consumption, a mindset that’s as good for your wallet and your well-being as it is for the planet.
