How To Hand Wash Clothes with The Simply Co.

Lauren Singer has garment care skills locked down, unlike much of her generation. She lives a zero waste lifestyle, runs the blog Trash is for Tossers, and recently started a green cleaning product company called The Simply Co. Lauren genuinely practices the zero waste lifestyle she preaches.

In this short video, Lauren shows us how to hand wash clothes using her three ingredient laundry detergent. No harsh chemicals, and it's zero waste because there's no liner and the cardboard box is recyclable! The Simply Co. makes sustainability simple.

The Simply Co.'s Kickstarter campaign begins today! Be one of the first to help fund a clean and zero waste product and get some killer rewards in return! 





4 Steps to Conscious Shopping with Orange Harp

4 Steps to Conscious Shopping with Orange Harp |

Orange Harp is a new mobile app for unique, high-quality, socially-conscious shopping. Their mission is to make it easy for people to connect with makers, discover incredible products, and make a social change. Brands are hand picked by Orange Harp based on their dedication to making conscious products and their contribution to the community and the planet. Orange Harp's core values are:

  • Design: the products are made of high quality, natural, or renewable materials.
  • Community: care for communities by giving back and upholding fair standards.
  • Planet: follow best practices that do not harm the earth. 

The app is well-designed and easy to use. With social and interactive elements, it helps consumers connect with each brand’s story, to explore their work, buy their products, and share those products with their friends. I'm impressed that Orange Harp carries brands I already buy, like Juniper Ridge, and has also introduced me to new conscious brands, like Naja lingerie. Since I know the brands are socially-conscious, all I have to do is find things I love!
