    I have actually moved away from shower gel and re-started using bar soaps.  They are much easier to get through TSA, and since most of my trips are at least 9 hours long I have my soap to use to freshen up, without wondering how much is 3 ozs.

    I am automatically drawn to natural fibers.  I prefer, cotton, linens etc. as opposed to synthetic rayon etc., since the itch.  If I select fabric that does contained synthetics, its usually from a responsible company who is using recycle material to create "waterproof" items (Portland rain) etc.

    could be doing better, but hard to get some stuff in eco friendly, reusable, or biodegradable packages at times...

    One interesting dilemma for us is the meal delivery services.  We just started using one a bit a couple of months ago and I'm not sure how this measures up with sustainability practices in mind.  Lots of small portion ingredients in small individual packets seems wasteful

    I have always used a teacup at work.  I also use a 40 oz metal water bottle at work.  The reason for the water bottle is dual.  It keeps plastic out of the landfill and also helps me achieve/measure my water intake each day.  This is a benefit others should consider while saving this planet for each other.
