Zero Waste News: Trash is for tossers by Lauren Singer

Trash is for tossers by Lauren Singer

I was an Environmental Studies major in College and have always been interested in the environment, but I made the conscious decision to live sustainably about a year and a half ago. 

There were two moments that brought me to a trash-free, waste-free lifestyle:

The first was my senior year of college when my professor Jeffrey Hollender, of Seventh Generation fame, emphasized the importance living your values and made me think about my own personal environmental impact. 

The second was when a fellow environmental studies major would bring lunch to class every week in a single use plastic bag, a disposable water bottle, and a plastic takeout container. I would sit there and think, we are supposed to be the future of this planet and here we are with our trash, messing it up.

Then I learned about this family in California, calling themselves the Zero Waste Home, that was producing little to no garbage, it was this Aha! moment for me. I wanted to lessen my impact, so I started my Zero Waste journey. This is when I really decided that I not only needed to claim to love the environment, but actually live like I love the environment.
