    I've started making beeswax wraps and using them in place of plastic wrap. Love them!

    How is everyone doing? I am trying really hard but mistakes do happen. I buy something out of old habit and don't realize until I'm out of the store. Have any of you been having challenges building these new plastic free habits?

    Did anyone else have a hard time staying plastic free at events? I did my part to buy plastic free, but there are still hot dog buns in plastic bags, flower bouquets wrapped in plastic and large plastic trash bags used at parties. It was a good opportunity to talk to my friends and family about plastics use, but still a long way to go.

    Started using a safety razor and dumped the plastic razor life!

    I've been reusing the plastic bags I get from the farmer's market, from Noah's bagels, and from the grocery store.

    I bought Shampoo and Conditioner in bars.  All the packaging is compostable!
