When she wakes up around 7:30 a.m., Singer brushes her teeth with a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush and toothpaste she made herself.
Singer said she usually starts her day brushing her teeth with toothpaste she makes herself from coconut oil, baking soda and essential oils, a recipe she’s shared with her 359,000 followers on Instagram.
Then it’s time for coffee. Singer said she buys whole roasted coffee beans in bulk and uses a French press to brew her java in the morning.
Singer said she buys coffee beans in bulk and grinds them fresh every morning.
While she waits for the coffee to brew, she takes her dog, Rose, out to use the bathroom.
Between 08.00 and 09.00 Singer drops the compost at a local composting site.
Singer said she puts the compostable in a paper bag and puts the bag in a reusable bag before going to the site.
When she gets home, Singer Rose makes her weekly meal using chicken, zucchini, apples, carrots and potatoes.
Singer said she boils the chicken and vegetables to make broth and puts Rose’s food in a stainless steel container that will last a week in the refrigerator.
Chicken for Rose is the only animal product she buys, she told Insider.
Ultimately, Singer said her day-to-day isn’t that different from anyone else’s. She only makes conscious choices about what she buys and consumes and prioritizes recycling and composting.
Singer said anyone can implement environmentally conscious changes in their lifestyle by assessing the areas of their lives where their trash comes from and making adjustments to reduce it.
“The average American makes four and a half pounds of trash per day, so anything to get closer to zero has a positive impact,” she said.
