Lucie Fink sorted through her garbage to see just how much trash she created in a week.

Fink hosts a YouTube channel, Try Living with Lucie, in which she documents five days trying something new.

Recently, Fink took on a five-day challenge to produce no trash. To help her get started, she enlisted the help of Lauren Singer, a zero-waste guru and blogger at Trash is for Tossers. Singer has managed to produce only a mason jar’s worth of trash in the last three years.

In Fink’s video below, Singer told her that there are four must-haves for adopting a zero-waste lifestyle: a glass jar, reusable silverware, reusable napkins and a tote bag. Then, Singer guided Fink through her weekly routine, including ordering coffee, grocery shopping and going out to eat.
