Plastic Challenge: Dawn Kearns, Week 1

Plastic Challenge: Dawn Kearns, Week 1

I know mouthwash is not necessary but I am used to using it. Does anyone have a homemade recipe?

Any suggestions for making homemade yogurt? I have heard of people using their ovens and crock pots but haven’t been brave enough to try it yet.

Any suggestions for dental floss or a brand that isn’t packaged in plastic?

Plastic Challenge: Julie B, Week 3

I already choice out of catalogs/junk mail through 41pounds.org/DMA Choice, but what do you do about the Presorted US Standard junk mail including local merchants? I received two mailers from a local jeweler packaged in plastic sleeves. Also, does anyone know of any cough drops NOT packaged in plastic?

What suggestions do you have for freezing fruits/veggies without plastic bags? Also, does anyone know if you can freeze yogurt? Our summer farmer’s market will allow your own containers for yogurt, but we eat yogurt all year, not just in summer. Thanks!

Plastic Challenge: Paul Kane, Week 1

My biggest challenge is finding the time to make stuff like nut milks, tofu (which i’ve never made), cat food, toothpaste, soy yoghurt, etc. I guess if anyone has any tips on how they are able to juggle making whatever it is they make week after week to avoid plastic, I’d love to hear them (especially if you have children).
