    Noticed I have made some family members more eco-conscious!  Noticed them skipping the straws when eating out!  It's a small step...but every little bit helps!

    Friends invited us to go out on their boat and have a picnic lunch.  Brought along cloth napkins, Corelle plates, stainless steel utensils for a total of for 6 people.  They were all onboard and happy to participate in saving the earth!  Saved a lot of plastic utensils, paper napkins and plates from entering our landfills!

    Lifestyle Travel Toiletries
    What is the benefit of using bar soaps or refilling your travel sized containers? Is this an action you think you will keep in your life?

    Switched to bar soaps in my gym bag and travel bag about 3 months ago.  Thought it was going to be too messy, but I figured out a way to make it work.  I wrap the soap in super absorbent cloth and then I place that in a wash cloth hand mitt.  By the time I use it again, it has dried completely and no mess. Love using bar soaps since there is very little packaging and 0% plastic packaging!  YES!!!

    Getting ready to go on vacation.  The Eco Challenge will be a challenge on vacation, but planning to recruit family members to participate for the week.  Bringing extra stainless steel straws, travel stainless steel utensils and cloth napkins!
