    A 'zero-waste' influencer - who previously revealed that all the trash she accumulated over the course of four years could fit into one tiny mason jar - has shared a detailed look into a day of her life, which includes using homemade products, composting, and shopping in second-hand stores. Lauren Singer, 31, from New York, has become well-known on the web for sharing an inside look into her sustainable lifestyle. The social media star and entrepreneur took on a 'zero-waste' lifestyle just over a decade ago, which means she does her best to produce as little garbage as possible in an attempt to improve the environment. In 2017, she earned viral fame after she posted a YouTube video, which has since gained more than one million views, in which she showcased all the rubbish she had built up in four years - and it was a shockingly small amount.

    Okay, it’s time to talk. We have a serious problem, a problem with waste. On whole, the American population only represents five percent of the world’s population, yet as a nation, we generate about 30 percent of the world’s garbage. Now I’m not placing blame on anyone individual, we are all in this together. On average, every person in the U.S. creates one million pounds of materials per person a year. To break this down a little, that is enough garbage to fill 63,000 garbage trucks every day. All that trash doesn’t just disappear, there are over 1,908 landfills in the U.S. and we’ve all heard the stories about trash island. I know these figures seem impossible, but think about how much waste you produce on a regular day. Disposable water bottles, coffee cups, napkins, all the packaging you throw out, the list goes on and on because we live in a very disposable society. But sitting back and accepting this trash problem is hardly the answer, in fact, with a few adjustments living a zero-waste lifestyle is very...

    Leading an ethically conscious life can be a little harder than the life you had before the decision to change. Friends may make “ew” noises when your food contains more soy than theirs, and parents can frown and scowl when you choose not to accept a gift of tickets to the circus or a sweater made by a company known for horrendous human rights violations. Social outings to restaurants become a game of “please, let my friends choose somewhere vegan-friendly to eat!” and some people just straight out stop talking to you after they realize you are an environmentalist, animal rights activist, or humanitarian. Some people expect detailed 10-page essays on why they shouldn’t laugh in your face regardless of what else is going on in your life. One of the major reasons people cite for not choosing a more ethically considerate lifestyle, other than the above social issues, is financial issues. Seeing a $6 cube of vegan cheese or a $200 shirt from a company that promises fair wages and treatment to its workers with ethically sourced materials can...
