Lauren Singer realizes that this country accounts for only 5% of the world’s population and yet it creates half of all its garbage.  She set out to do something.  With a mindful approach, she believes we can lighten our collective load.  She uses a bamboo coffee cup, a set of to-go bamboo knife, fork and spoon, and a reusable one-liter water bottle.  She recycles and composts.

My hero and zero waste advocate.
