    I believe the film is called The True Cost and hope to view it one of these days. I hear it is good.

    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?

    I heard of a brand (NUUD) that I am excited to try. I am waiting until my current sticks are out and plan to try this brand.

    Personal Care Say No to "Flushable Wipes"
    Even though they are marketed as "flushable," disposable wipes do not disintegrate in water or the sewer system, and actually release microplastics into our waterways. How does it feel to learn this information? What do you want to do about it?

    With a baby at home and some other things that happened in July I was not able to do this. There are a few films I have heard of and hope to eventually find and view.

    It was unfortunate that just about everyplace did not allow us to bring our own bags during the pandemic but am happy it seems to be ok now.

    I try to take a daily walk and when I have the chance to pick up a thing or two I feel better about my neighborhood and myself.

    Food Advocate For More Food Packaging Options
    Single use plastics have become normalized in our society to the point that most people don't see them as a problem. What would you say to a friend, colleague, or family member who may not understand why these disposables are an issue?

    I’ve tried explaining to family members the danger of single use plastic by showing them which items from our various waste bins cannot be diverted from the landfill.
