    I switched to bar shampoo, conditioner, and soap that all come in cardboard or compostable packaging over a year ago. The bar shampoo and conditioner have lasted much longer than I thought they would, and also leave my hair feeling much healthier and softer. Before I was probably going through 3-4 bottles of shampoo every year. Now, I’ve had...

    Carrying all of the groceries inside without a bag is challenging. Getting them in the car is easier, if a bit tedious, with a shopping cart. I already own reusable produce bags made with recycled plastic, and even though the carbon offset of producing reusable bags is dubious, at least I'm using what I already have.

    To curb hunger, eating snacks and meals with more protein and fiber - along with water - will help keep you full for longer.

    Someone can express themselves without buying new clothes by upcycling their existing wardrobe, making repairs and alterations, and using their clothes for longer until replacing them is really necessary. Thrift shopping might work as well.

    I spent most of my day yesterday working in the garden to plant more vegetables. I am excited to start canning things later in the season.
