Plastic Challenge: Mary Katherine, Week 14

    I’m running out of shampoo… I tried the baking soda vinegar thing, but it left a nasty earwax-like residue on my scalp. It made my head itch too. I adjusted the amounts and everything but it still didn’t work. I tried a bar from Lush that worked well but it had sodium laurel […]

Plastic Challenge: Sandy, Week 2

I’m confused by this eco-friendly bag wine. It says its more environmentally friendly because it replaces 2 glass bottles. Not so sure. Will be making some shopping bags for the family to save them from using plastics. I plan to line them with plastic tablecloths that I picked up at Goodwill. Does buying plastics and […]
