AN influencer says she can fit years worth of rubbish into a mason jar after living a ‘no-waste’ lifestyle for a decade.

Lauren Singer began living her zero waste lifestyle in 2012 in an effort to align her actions with her desire to care for the planet.

Lauren Singer has lived a zero-waste lifestyle for a decade and can fit years of trash in a mason jar

“I thought that consideration was enough, but it turned out that my lifestyle was creating harm and contributing to the systems that I was actively talking about and fighting against,” she told Insider.

She immediately started her blog Trash for Tossers, where she describes her transition to a zero-waste lifestyle.

Years later, she founded her store, Package Free, where she sells sustainable products with minimal packaging that can be reused, refilled, composted or recycled.

She went viral after posting a YouTube video revealing that she could fit four years of her junk into a single 16-ounce mason jar.

Singer starts her day with a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush that she made herself, along with homemade toothpaste consisting of coconut oil, baking soda and essential oils.

As part of her morning routine, Singer drops off her compost at a local compost site before working out in an eco-friendly studio to do her Pilates.

For food, Singer shops at a farmer’s market or her local grocery store, something she does often to ensure she always has fresh produce.

Singer buys mostly fruits and vegetables, but chicken is the only animal product she buys for her dog, Rose.


When she goes shopping, Singer prefers to shop at second-hand stores and washes with homemade detergent.

Singer said her daily routine isn’t that different from anyone else’s — except that she makes conscious choices about what she buys and prioritizes recycling and composting.

She says anyone can do the same by considering where their trash comes from and making choices to reduce it.

“The average American makes four and a half pounds of trash per day, so anything to get closer to zero has a positive impact,” she said.

She shares recipes and tips for her routine on her Instagram TrashIsForTossers, where she has over 350,000 followers.

According to her blog, Trash is For Tossers is “a place for readers to get information and tools to reduce their waste and live in line with their environmental values.”

Singer says anyone can start living the same lifestyle as hers by making a conscious effort to reduce their trash
