The little jar in the photo contains two years of trash from Lauren Singer at Trash Is For TossersÂ Â that she could not recycle or compost.. Singer takes zero waste and sustainability to whole new levels, and has lots of useful tips and ideas. She packs her lunch in Mason jars, never uses plastic containers, brings eating utensils when eating at fast food restaurants, uses bamboo handle toothbrushes and unbleached toilet paper, and much more. She just launched a company making 3-ingredient organic laundry soap after raising $41,719 on Kickstarter, 4x what she asked for.
Never in my wildest dreams did I expect Trash is for Tossers to turn into a career, but in a strange way it has. The recipes for my cleaning products, the ones that I have been writing about over the past two years, have been in high demand. The problem is, many of my readers have been asking me where they can buy the products that are as pure as the ones that I post about for Trash is for Tossers since they don’t have the time to make them themselves. As a result of this demand, today I am launching the Kickstarter campaign for my new company, The Simply Co.
This is not just any company. It will be Zero Waste, plastic free, and will incorporate- from day one- all of the standards and values that I hold myself to living a sustainable and trash free life.
