    I spent most of my vacation telling my mom about the eco challenge and ways she can reduce her lasting usage and was shocked at how less eco friendly California is than Oregon

    I forgot my brush kit for my straw today and submitted for Ruby to purchase reusable straw brushes and baby bottle brushes so we can clean out reusable utensils at the pearl.

    Lifestyle Complete a Waste Audit
    What did you learn about the waste you create? Where can you reduce the most?

    kaurie clough 7/18/2019 2:21 PM
    I learned through the waste audit that the majority of my waste is plastic or paper and I can put in into a recyclable container in my apartment complex. They never enforce the notice that we sign to recycle when possible which I should have been doing all along

    What concerns you the most about how we are affecting the planet? Consider both local and global actions.

    The pollution of the ocean is my biggest concerns and how we affect the other animals and plants that we shared with and may be killing off..

    Do some research on the toxic side affects of aluminum deodorant. After reading the side effects, can you think of instances where you may have experienced the side effects from this form of deodorant?

    Received my deo in a  jar yesterday! I feel like im putting butter on my arm pits but thankfully it totally works and had no smell so far. I will test throughout the weekend. I generally have a much happier day when Im consciece of my plastics and in general waste products.
