    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?

    Aside from the obvious environmental impact of refilling old containers and using bar soaps, it also ends up being more cost effective as well. In addition, using bar soaps that will shrink with use will end up saving space and weight in you luggage when you travel.

    When it comes to getting together with others to clean up our community and environment, I feel very accomplished. Like I am actually making a difference, even if it is just a small one.
