2 years of waste fits inside 16oz mason jar.
Lauren Singer is a great example of someone who has made simple lifestyle changes to reduce trash (anything that is cannot be recycled, composted, or used for something else ). She has adapted her lifestyle to a degree where she has only produced a handle of trash over a two year period.
Her strategies include:
- Buying bulk items, and purchasing produce at farmers markets
- Using mason jars for beverages, and a variety of reusable bags and containers
- Creating own cleaning products, dryer sheets, toothpaste, and deodorant.
