How much trash do you make in a day? About 4.4 pounds of trash like Americans? Or how about in a 16-ounce Mason jar?
Lauren Singer is a 23-year-old woman who “is a practitioner of a light-footprint, minimal-plastic lifestyle” and a business owner of The Simply Co.. She avoids “purchasing or using anything that might end up in a landfill.” As you look at her trash on the website, she tells us that the amount of trash she made is actually two years of trash (you will be surprised on what and how much trash was saved from going to waste).

Also, she has information about her product (a detergent) on The Simply Co. The detergent has 3 organic ingredients in it. To get the product developed, she ran a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in which she was able to raise $42k.
Would you like to be able to product that little of trash each year?
