Lauren Singer lives a nearly trash-free life, but she didn’t go zero waste overnight. Her story, and some easy tips to get started on reducing your own waste.

Can poop power our cars?

A growing number of waste experts think that shooting for zero waste is realistic, not just for individuals, but for large organizations, even cities.

Conservation International CEO and UCLA Visiting Researcher M.

Singer provides simple tips to help you start down the road of reducing your waste, even if you never hit zero.
