  Even with Los Angeles’ aggressive zero waste plan not in full effect yet, we still rank number five nationally in a study on America’s Least Wasteful Cities. “Following the path to a least wasteful lifestyle is done most often when it’s easy and convenient,” the study concluded. “Overall results showed that the easier and more convenient an action, the more frequently it’s practiced. The good news is that Americans seem to be learning the importance of taking small steps to reduce our impact on the environment.
