These days, a lot more lifestyle gurus promote a zero waste lifestyle. Lauren Singer is one of them, advocating for a greener living in her dedicated blog Trash is for Tossers, as well as her numerous social media platforms. Her journey began in 2012 when Singer was an Environmental Studies major.
To Singer, zero waste means that she does not produce any garbage whatsoever. “No sending anything to landfill, no throwing anything in a trash can, nothing. However, I do recycle and I do compost,” she explains on her website. “We are supposed to be the future of this planet and here we are with our trash, messing it up,” she stresses.
Amassing more than 300 thousand dedicated followers, Singer documents her journey, proving that conscious consumption can be fun, stylish, and cost-effective. Because the truth is, our earth deserves better and we can do better.
Take a look for yourself.
