Plastic Challenge: Hanh Pham, Week 4

Is there a non plastic alternative to Dr. Bonners? I buy it in bulk and use it for just about everything, but it’s in a plastic bottle. Has anyone seen Bragg’s in a glass bottle? But even if it was in a glass bottle, there may be plastic around the lid. Has anyone tried making […]

Plastic Challenge: Cynthia p.w., Week 1
