Another way to eliminate non-recyclable things from your life is to shop at a store that removes them for you. Package Free was conceived of by Lauren Singer, who has become synonymous with the Zero Waste movement vis a vis her blog. Incredibly, all the non-recyclable waste she has produced in the last five years can fit into a 16 oz mason jar. While that is a bit extreme, she shows us the way to begin to reduce the amount of trash we send to landfills. While here, I picked up a bamboo fiber coffee cup & a toothbrush! She has created a stylish store that has lots of things that could replace your needs and wants with items that are more environmentally friendly.
