I'm shoked how little waste Lauren creates. It's really amazing. I suppose if everyone did so, our planet would be much more cleaner. I don't want to say that it's impossible, but it's actually hard to reach. I and my family produce a lot of waste. Honestly, I'm trying to reduce using of plastic and useless staff but I'm so far from what Lauren does. She is a great example of conscious behavior toward the planet.

I actually think in my family’s amount of waste, but with all the worries and things our days have, I spend just a few minutes considering it. To be honest, most of the time, the thoughts do not go beyond and do not become actions.
I think that Lauren’s lifestyle is really helpful for the environment, but I could never do it. I consider that it is exceedingly difficult to obtain it and demands a lot of time. I mean, it is great if you have the time and patience to create your products, drive hours to that little organic, plastic-free store at the city’s other side, yet very few people have them.
I consider it super important to take care of Earth, but I prefer to help in reducing the amount of water I use, walking instead of using a car, etc.

I don`t pay much attention to the quantity of trash my family and I could produce in a day and that concerned me. Most the time we try to avoid plastic bags or not use plastic cutlery when we go out to eat but in the market, there are plenty of products with plastic and even though we try to put them in plastic bottles for donating to a foundation that recycles them, many things could be recycled but it changes into the garbage so we miss the opportunity to help the planet. I think Lauren´s lifestyle is an example for the people who think it couldn't be possible to live without plastic. Although, it has a big problem in terms of the economy because currently, organic products are expensive than products from the supermarket so not all the people could afford the cost that implies buying these products or the materials to make their own.
