    Tonight, my daughter asked me what she should do with a plastic water container she replaced with a glass container for school. She wanted to know if she should recycle it or donate it.

    I purchase my deodorant from Native.  They only use all natural, cruelty free, and edible (but not recommended) ingredients!  They have transitioned over the past few years to offering plastic-free deodorant!!!  Unfortunately, not all scents are available in plastic-free, but many are!  I even got my daughter to switch to using their...

    We did it y'all! Another month of opportunities to learn and make positive changes.  I know my family and I have adopted a few new habits and I'm grateful to everyone who has shared tips and encouragement.  Enjoy the rest of your summer :)
