    Month is almost up! I found a new deodorant that I really like. It seems to do pretty well unless it's really hot or I'm doing a lot of work.

      I'm still trying out different brands so far I've used ethique (which was fine but didn't stand up to crazy keeper days that well), and a jar I found at sprouts (liked that one a lot). I have a friend that swears by humankind

    I am learning more about different ways to go plastic free/ single-use plastic free. I am also noticing more ways to remove plastic, and more hidden plastics that I didn't realize I was still using.
