    Hi Team! 
    We are leading the charge against the other SCZ teams but only by a few points!  Keep up the good work and don't forget to check in every day :)

    This week's RRR tip is to try out shampoo/conditioners in bar form, they foam up just like regular shampoo, are great for your hair and take up less space in your shower!  Here is a review of several different brands.  https://www.vogue.com/article/best-shampoo-bars
    or you can try to make your own https://www.diynatural.com/homemade-shampoo-bar-diy/

    Did you know that more than 552 million shampoo bottles could be ending up in landfills every year; the number of shampoo bottles thrown out in the United States every year could fill 1,164 football fields; and only 1 in 5 people consistently recycle items from the bathroom.

    Say HI to Dazi, our newest addition to the SCZ okapi group ❤️!  Dazi is a handsome 4yr old male that came to us from Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Okapi have zebra-like stripes (that help the blend in to the shadows of the Congo jungle) but are most closely related to giraffe!  They also have a very long tongue that helps them reach the best leaves!

      These are pricey but my favorite :)  I look for them during prime days or daily deals to get them at a discount but mine have lasted YEARS!!

    I don't know if you all love Okapi as much as I do but we all can agree that decreasing our impact on the planet is important to okapi as well as humans!  Keep checking in for the month of July for some eco tips and okapi facts.  Thanks for joining my team and be sure to invite your friends!
