The Instagram magazine, Trash Is For Tossers by Lauren Singer, promotes living with zero waste. Lauren is constantly talking trash to keep us from making it. There is no "away" to throw things to, so learning to live without waste is really important. At 26 this model for a life in balance, not only looks great in used threads she makes a compelling case to hit the vintage racks. According to Lauren, Americans toss 25 billion pounds of clothing every single year! Her solution to that is second hand shopping! Lauren buys all of her clothes in second hand shops and re-sells what she doesn't wear. She keeps her guilt free wardrobe fresh and current and out of the landfill. This method of repurposing the past also saves a lot of money. Take the guilt out of shopping and discarding and save that cash for your next great adventure. Check her and her shop out on line at TrashisforTossers.com. Live with #zerowaste wear a #zerowastewardrobe and buy #secondhand.
