Reduce, reuse, recycle - we've heard the three Rs since grade school, but how many people are actually living waste-free lives? Martha Stewart Living is launching its "Change the Day" campaign to highlight ways people can improve the environment and world we live in.
Elizabeth Graves, Editor-in-Chief at Martha Stewart Living, explains where the idea for the campaign came from. She says she was inspired when she first heard how much waste Americans were actually making. While the United States only accounts for 5% of the world's population, Americans account for almost half of the world's trash.
The first issue that "Change the Day" is taking on is trash. The new issue of Martha Stewart Living highlights ways that people can implement reusable products into their daily lives. The issue also features an interview with environmental activist Lauren Singer, who has reduced the amount of waste she produces each year to the size of a small jar.
