    And we’ve done it. An entire month of trying to reduce the amount of plastic waste in our lives. This challenge has made me more aware of the places that plastic has crept into our lives unnecessarily, and I plan to build on what I learned during this past month and continue to reduce both my and my family’s reliance on plastic.

    Another day down, only one more to go. I can scarcely believe its been a whole month.

    Excited to see our point totals and how much plastic we didn’t use over the course of the month.

    Just purchased bamboo toothbrushes for the family.
  • 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?

    Rashmi Gill 7/22/2019 10:48 AM
    I'm not sure what is meant by "health & safety" purchasing habits.
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Lather Up
    What are the economic and personal benefits of switching to bar soap/shampoo/conditioner or refillable bottle options?

    Rashmi Gill 7/21/2019 9:36 AM
    I feel like I'm actually making an impact

    Dislike that you can "earn more points" by simply logging in each day or posting on feed. As someone who has tried to be environmentally conscious and greatly reduced their consumption for years, it's a very hollow act to log my actions. I could see how it can benefit and motivate those new to eco-consciousness, but I find it a bit off-putting.

    Personal Care Just Say No
    Do some research on polystyrene and polyvinyl. How many items in your house already contain these toxins?

    Rashmi Gill 7/19/2019 7:04 AM
    I've been taking more time in looking at ingredients and package materials.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Use Reusable Containers
    How can you think outside the box (or bag!) when it comes to disposables?

    Rashmi Gill 7/18/2019 9:06 AM
    I use my hands instead of cutlery. :)
