Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 22

Dishsoap- I just polished off my giant refill bag. Any suggestions (other than not using it)? Garbage bags- we’re starting to run low on our ancient stash of grocery store bags that we’ve been using for this purpose, but I don’t feel like we’re close enough to needing NO garbage bags… my understanding is that […]

Plastic Challenge: Ellen Simpson, Week 12

Toilet paper – I’ve seen commercial settings, including my work, where the toilet paper is set out […]
