DIY Soap to Reduce Time and Trash

Lauren Singer works for the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, but her care for the environment doesn’t stop when she leaves work. For the past year, Singer has been working towards living a trash-free life. She cuts trash from her life in a number of ways: she makes her own skincare, buys her food in bulk, and carries a mason jar every where she goes so she doesn’t have to use to-go cups. She discusses her journey on her blog, “Trash is for Tossers,” where she shares stories, tips, and advice for people looking to go trash-free.
