“Kathy Stein’s ideas and suggestions are not just good for the environment, they’re great for your wallet, too. That’s a win-win combination anybody can live with. By highlighting the need to re-use, Ms. Stein is one of the first authors to confront the real environmental issue facing our society — the need to consume less, not just recycle more”. (Bob Lilienfeld, Editor, The Use Less Stuff Report)

“This volume is information rich, thoughtfully organized and highly useful”. (Melissa Everett, Global Action Plan)

Kathy Stein’s convenient guide describes 336 simple, practical ways to re-use 70 types of common products — most of them not recyclable and currently adding to our already overflowing landfills. This book also helps readers locate businesses and non-profit organizations that re-use a wide range of products, as well as outlets for re-usable products. Beyond Recycling offers specifics on dozens of ways for consumers to save money, including new uses for old products, low-cost alternatives to disposables, and tips on maintaining appliances, vehicles, computers, and furnishings. A guide for the nineties, Beyond Recycling shows how to save money through common-sense choices that contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
