  • Reflection Question
    Lifestyle Buy Only What I Need
    As you have reduced your spending, what have you noticed about your 'health and safety' purchasing habits? How might this change your longer term purchasing decisions?

    I'm not sure what is meant by "health & safety" purchasing habits.

    Personal Care Lather Up
    What are the economic and personal benefits of switching to bar soap/shampoo/conditioner or refillable bottle options?

    Do some research on polystyrene and polyvinyl. How many items in your house already contain these toxins?

    I've been taking more time in looking at ingredients and package materials.
