Everyone produces trash, right? Nope. 23-year-old Lauren Singer has been living a waste-free life for two years; the amount of “junk” she has fits into one tiny mason jar. She recently quit her job as Sustainability Manager for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection to launch her new company, The Simply Co. Singer raised over $41,000 on Kickstarter — surpassing her $10,000 goal in the process — to begin production on an organic, three ingredient laundry detergent. We spent the day with her and learned how she does it.
