Do you think it's possible to create just a single litre of rubbish in a year?

Zero waste activist Béa Johnson has been doing just that for the last decade, with the help of her very own 5R formula: Refuse, Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, Rot.

She's been giving a talk about her sustainability crusade at the UN in Geneva.

It gave UN Radio the idea of checking where we stand on the sustainability index.

Our very own correspondent in the Swiss city, Daniel Johnson (no relation); started by asking the good life guru to assess the state of his desk.
