When it’s your first time to ask someone to put that half kilo of swordfish into your own tupperware it feels strange. But it’s the good kind of strange.
It was a long time ago since I last watched this TED talk by Lauren Singer. It was interesting to know that anyone can fit years worth of trash into a mason jar. I watched it, I was amazed, and that’s it.
A few years later I came upon the same idea through youtube. I never knew how I got there. You know how watching a video about minimalism can eventually shift to a video on what americans think about filipino snacks or funny animal compilations, so I won’t even try to check my watch history. It just makes so much sense to try and join this movement with the ever growing concern in consumerism and how this has affected the environment and our health. For the record, this is more than just trying to fit your trash into a mason jar.
