Lauren Singer

The Entrepreneur Teaching Us How to Live Zero Waste

Lauren Singer lives with zero waste. And that’s no exaggeration. Outside of composting and last-resort recycling, all of the trash Singer has produced in the last five years fits inside a 16-ounce mason jar. Singer chronicles this journey on her blog, Trash is for Tossers—a place where she empowers people to make choices in their own lives to reduce the amount of waste they create. She also produces toxin- and waste-free products under her companies, The Simply Co. and Package Free Shop.

“Sometimes when you talk about environmental issues with someone it makes them feel bad...and I don’t think that’s fair. I believe in meeting people where they’re at.”
