Lindsey Reynolds has both a practical and light-hearted approach to living a zero waste lifestyle from a single millennial perspective.



Lucky enough to be based in New Orleans, Lindsey takes a holistic yet pragmatic approach to living a sustainable lifestyle. 

With a writing career running the gamut from airlines to higher education to the hospitality industry to sustainable living, Lindsey believes that a low-waste lifestyle can be applied to anyone and anywhere. Working as a writer, editor, and social media strategist, she has been part of the MNN and Treehugger team since 2017. Previously, she was part of the first-ever social media team for Southwest Airlines, did public relations for award-winning chefs and restaurants, was the managing editor for Tales of the Cocktail, and was awarded the Nathalie Dupree fellowship at the Southern Foodways Alliance, an institution based at the University of Mississippi, where her research centered on journalism and the media portrayal of the American South. Her work has appeared in Garden & Gun, CNN Eatocracy, The Daily Mississippian, Good Grit, and Oxford magazine.

In addition, Lindsey is a rescue dog enthusiast, professional introvert, and was one of TIME magazine’s 2017 Person of the Year. She lives with her two rescue pitties in New Orleans, Louisiana.



Lindsey holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas with a major in Advertising and Copywriting, and a Master of Arts in Southern Studies from the University of Mississippi.
