Living in a Van & Resisting The Man: Corinne Loperfido’s Zero Waste Life

Living in a Van without Succumbing To The Man. For Artist, Activist, and Community Event Producer, Corinne Loperfido, it was the combination of a dad with the motto, “if it’s free it’s for me,” a friend who said, “who needs a man when you have a van?” and a teacher who asked her, “what are you willing to risk?” to protect the environment, that led to a life-changing “aha” moment. Two years ago, Corinne radically changed her existence when she moved into a van and began living a zero-waste lifestyle, buying essentially nothing that couldn’t be returned to the earth (besides the fuel that she uses as efficiently as possible). By wholeheartedly committing to the future of our planet, Corinne stepped onto a path to her most awakened, humble, empowered and stylish self.
