In 2012, Brooklynite Lauren Singer, committed to a #zerowaste lifestyle and today can fit 5 years of trash into one small jar.


After graduating NYU with a major in environmental studies, she decided to put the principles she’d learned into practice. Singer founded the Packagefreeshop and a blog called, Trash Is For Tossers where she shares tips on how you can get your output down from the American average of 4 1/2 lbs per day. Yikes!

I guess we have another suggestion to add to our mason jar report. Talk about waste-free.
