Join FTFA this May (2017) for 2 Amazing Events with Bea Johnson

Bea and her family generate a quart size jar of waste per year.  With her passion and positive outlook, Bea launched a global movement and has become the spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle. She inspires a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste with the application of the 5R's:
  Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot.
She shatters misconceptions, proving that waste-free living can not only be "stylish", but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings. She regularly speaks at universities and corporate events and opens her home to educational tours and the media. She is a French native who currently lives in California. Come see her live in Durban and Johannesburg as Food & Trees for Africa host Bea Johnson this May.
