    Default You can live without producing trash

    Source




    One New York woman is making an effort to change the way we think about waste. Over the past two years, Lauren Singer has produced only enough trash to fill a 16 oz mason jar.

    In Going Off Grid, Laura Ling examines how 180,000 Americans a year are choosing to live entirely disconnected from our modern internet-focused world in pursuit of a more sustainable, simple lifestyle.

    She's doing such a wonderful job...I wish I were doing as well as she is.... Loved the video, I'm going to send it to my recycling team in my immediate Village so they can send it out to the community.

    I'm always looking in my garbage bin (yes I have one still) trying to decide what I can recycle and where I can take it.
