I will say that I didn't get as much as I thought I would from it in terms of techniques, as a lot of the suggestions are already common practice where I live (curbside composting, reusable grocery stuff, cook your own stuff, etc...) With that said the mindset put forward is very helpful when it comes to even further reducing the amount of stuff you put in that gray colored trash can as opposed to the other two.
Also, I think it's worth mentioning that backyard compost might not be a good idea in all areas even if you have the space. Korst says she had no real animal issues, try it in Tahoe and you'll have a bear and coyote party in your back yard every night. :)
All told a good read with good practical and philosophical information. Thumbs up!
