    When is it hardest not to use a plastic bag? What can motivate you to stick to your goal in those cases?

    When I want to bring something small to eat with me in my purse.  I need  to invest in some reusable bags to such occasions.

    I watched the next documentary also.  It was very interesting and showed that we have a long way to go to educate people and to discover ways to reduce plastic usage in our world.

    I made the all purpose cleaner - in a smaller batch just to try it out.  It works just fine.

    The Plastic Problem showed the huge situation of plastic trash being everywhere.  Many have hope that it can be controlled, but it will take a lot of cooperation and caring for the planet.

    How difficult (or easy!) has it been for you to cut dryer sheets from your laundry routine?

    This was not very hard at all.

      Cutting out dryer sheets was easy, since I haven't used them in years. I stopped when my daughters were little and I couldn't picture the strong scent being good for their health.

    I made All Purpose Cleaner and used it on the kitchen countertops and kitchen table.  I looked up non-toxic window cleaner recipes and mixed one up.  I was satisfied with both cleaners.
