    We made it!  Lets keep those new habits going year round!
  • Reflection Question
    Lifestyle Homemade Cleaners
    What did you learn by making your own cleaning products? What is the biggest difference in making vs buying?

    Nicole Davis 7/31/2019 11:54 AM
    The ingredients I have came in plastic bottles still, but at least buying in bulk like this means fewer smaller bottles are being used. If only glass bottles were less expensive.

    I can't believe it's already the end of the month! It's so neat to watch everyone's contributions add up. Can't wait to see the final tallies!

    And another Plastic Free July is done!  See you next year.
  • Reflection Question
    Family Thoughtful Toys
    Does your child play differently with natural or repurposed toys than with other toys? If so, how?

    Debbie Milligan 7/31/2019 11:32 AM
    I don't have a kid, but when I purchase for gifts I try to find items that are natural colored and made of natural products.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Cook a Zero-Plastic Waste Meal
    Do an inventory of your kitchen to see how many single-use plastics you've used in the past. What are some resuable alternatives to these commonly used products? What would your impact be if you switched all the single-use products from your inventory to reusable?

    Debbie Milligan 7/31/2019 11:31 AM
    I actually don't use a lot of single use plastics.  I try to buy in bulk or items that come in paper bags/boxes.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Use Reusable Containers
    How can you think outside the box (or bag!) when it comes to disposables?

    Debbie Milligan 7/31/2019 11:30 AM
    I checked with my local Sprouts to see if I can take my jars in so I don't have to use disposible bags.

    I like finding what kind of cleaners I can make so I don't have to use bleach.
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Pretty oh so Pretty
    How can you advocate for the importance of reducing packaging to the rest of your friends, family and larger community?

    Debbie Milligan 7/31/2019 11:27 AM
    Leading by example.  Take your reuseable bags with you whenever you shop.
