    I am very excited to see that large companies such as Lysol & Clorox are now making it possible to reuse their plastic by offering small refill packs and reducing 75% of their plastic!!

    You would think that plastic free would be easy, but it isn't. I felt like I was a very eco friendly person, but I am realizing that some products do not come with eco friendly options. This NEEDS to change!

      You are so right! I'm trying to advocate for that change this year with some of the actions I've selected.
