  • Reflection Question
    At Home Skip the Dryer Sheets
    How difficult (or easy!) has it been for you to cut dryer sheets from your laundry routine?

    Now using the wool dryer balls. During the warmer weather, I do use a clothesline.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Make Your Own
    How do you feel about being more involved in the food preparation process? Joyful, overwhelmed, engaged, empowered? What are the benefits of choosing to process or produce your own food instead of buying it pre-processed?

    I guess I do a lot of this already. I make full meals and freeze them in glass storage containers.
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Replace My Toothbrush
    What are the benefits of switching to bamboo, wood, or recycled-content toothbrushes? How could you get others to make this change, too?

  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Switch to compostable floss
    Flossing is a hard habit to maintain for a lot of people! Does making your flossing routine more sustainable give you motivation to keep up this notoriously difficult habit?

      I didn't either. We don't have pick-up of compostables here yet But it's coming in 2022.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Cook Meals with Zero Plastic Waste
    Do an inventory of your kitchen to see how many single-use plastics you've used in the past. What are some low-waste or reusable alternatives to these commonly used products? What would your impact be if you switched all the single-use products from your inventory to reusable? Are there any items where it would be difficult to avoid plastic waste?
