Plastic Challenge: Kristin Overton, Week 50

Hair products: I have naturally wavy hair but it’s also what you could call “unruly”. If air drying, I usually use some sort of mousse or gel (spray or otherwise) type product… ideas? Brands of hot sauce: knowing that in Canada I may not be able to find what you may recommend, have you found […]

Plastic Challenge: Kristin Overton, Week 49

Our deep freeze is a lid-on-top style (rather than stand up) and I suspect when we begin to use glass to store leftovers there is a risk of breakage. Does anyone know of any sort of shelving systems we could use? The freezer does have one basket that sits on the top, and we have […]

Winter composting ideas aside from vermiculture, which we already do? We live somewhere that if we leave any food outside, critters will get it. It’s too early for bears but they’ll be out soon enough! Cheesecloth (actually for cheesemaking!) seems to only be sold in plastic packaging. Is there an alternative/environmentally conscious brand out there? […]

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 34

The hairdryer I’ve had for close to ten years died on me this week. I’ve bought a new one because air drying one’s hair in a climate that involves snow & a predicted worst winter ever (thanks el nina) isn’t going to happen. Can I just throw it in the trash, or can it be […]
