No, Lauren's not living out in nature. She lives in the city, just like us. She has a full time occupation and she is just like us!

6. When she's out grocery shopping, she carries her own tote bags and jars. For instance, if she is going to buy rice, she doesn't buy a packaged one. She prefers places that she can buy a desired amount.

Actually, she is not discovering something new. Back in the day, our grandparents were living just like that.

Before the consumer culture took over, people did not see disposable plastic and nylon materials as a must.
