Today’s Iconic Woman Under 30 is Lauren Singer, an environmental activist, entrepreneur, and blogger in the zero-waste movement.
You’ve probably already heard of “waste management” - which is how waste is handled or redirected once it already exists. But Lauren is bringing awareness to “zero-waste” - which is all about preventing trash from existing in the first place. Or, as she likes to say, making the world less trashy!
Lauren is known for keeping all of her personal trash in one 16 oz mason jar since 2012. EIGHT YEARS of trash that can all be contained in ONE jar! Now that’s commitment.
But, it’s important to Lauren to inspire others to take small steps that lead to big changes, for human health, and the health of our planet!
So, her @trashisfortossers website offers tips for zero-waste fashion, home and living, and even diy & guides that make sustainability easy, accessible, and even fun!
If you spend even five minutes on her website, you are going to be IMMEDIATELY inspired and motivated, and I think you’ll find that your mindset has shifted - at least a little - for good.
