I came across this video today which is both inspiring and important to watch. Laura Ling interviews Lauren Singer who has produced trash over the last two years that can fit into one small mason jar. Singer brings up the important topics of reusing, recycling, and composting as much as possible.
First it starts with little steps. Keep a reusable bag and travel mug with you, switch out wasteful products for more sustainable products (like a Bamboo toothbrush which I’m totally now going to check out) to making bigger steps like considering using a Diva cup and making products (toothpaste, deodorant) on your own.
See, mason jars aren’t just for decorative purposes, they’re sustainable too.
