    Sounds rudimentary,  but the environmental health effects my community, which in turn effects my family's health 
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Fresh as a Daisy
    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?

    There was a time I had to give up deodorant for a couple weeks because my pores were so clogged.  It was really painful.

    How do you feel about being more involved in the food preparation process? Joyful, overwhelmed, engaged, empowered? What are the benefits of choosing to process or produce your own food instead of buying it pre-processed?

    A little overwhelmed but happy about it.  Seems like a lot to get together and do on a normal basis, but I think will be really fun to do with my family.
