Les reco de l'équipe : le zéro déchet

The team's recommendations: zero waste

New regular appointment on the Bonsaï blog with a series dedicated to our best recommendations on eco-responsible topics. We attack this first issue with the theme of zero waste!

The book: " The 50 zero waste golden rules " by Julie Niel-Villemin (Editions Larousse, 96 pages)

With 50 tips to limit our waste and preserve our planet, this very practical little book teaches us how to change our habits sustainably at home and in the office: buy in bulk, repair, rent, make cleaning products, etc.

The movie: "Wall-E" by Andrew Stanton (2008)

Curious and indiscreet, Wall-E is the last being on Earth! Abandoned 700 years earlier by humanity, his mission is to clean up the Earth. A hilarious and poetic fable, this film aimed at everyone opens up reflection on our consumption habits.

The comic strip: " Ze Journal de la Famille (almost) zero waste " by Bénédicte Moret (Editions Le Lombard, 152 pages)

A story of family adventures towards a waste-free lifestyle, this comic strip reveals a crazy adventure full of self-mockery, from awareness to a new balance!

The podcast: "I do my best"

Created in December 2019, this podcast talks about ecology, transition and the world of tomorrow, but in an uninhibited and above all guilt-free way. No moralizing speeches on the program, the episodes are designed to give food for thought and the first steps to take action and put into practice.

The recipe: radish leaf pesto

For this recipe, you will need:

  • 1 handful of radish tops
  • 10 cl of olive oil
  • 80 g of parmesan
  • A few cloves of garlic
  1. Clean the radish tops and pat them dry on paper towels.
  2. (Optional) Fry the garlic cloves if you can't stand raw garlic
  3. In a mortar (and not a blender to let the aromas express themselves without heating the preparation), crush the radish tops and the garlic, while adding the olive oil to coat the preparation and the parmesan to give more consistency

Serve with pasta or grilled vegetables. The preparation can also flavor fish or grilled meat.

The Instagram account: Student zero-waste

"Ecology is not a story of budget": this is the credo of this Instagram account which shares its best advice for applying the principles of zero waste without exceeding its budget. Cooking recipes, cosmetic ideas, advice and best practices... The account is full of brilliant ideas!

We hope you enjoyed this selection! And don't forget our 100% biodegradable and plastic-free Bonsai chewing gum to practice zero waste with a good natural taste of mint in the mouth 😋
