Let Lauren's story be inspiration for you: as a senior at NYU she realised that whilst she was a passionate advocate for green living, at the end of the day she'd still be using and wasting plastic products that contributed to our landfills and global warming. So she decided to turn her words into actions and start a zero-waste movement through blogging, and more recently, a YouTube channel. Her content features easy tips and tricks on how to make the change from wasteful consumption to a zero-waste life, from the food you eat to household staples like toothpaste and deodorant!
