Is recycling a sustainable waste solution or do we have wool pulled over our eyes? In this post, I discuss what recycling does and doesn’t accomplish, how to be an eco-friendly consumer, and how to be a better recycler.

    Say No to Plastic, Create a Plastic-Free Bathroom

    In honor of Plastic Free July, I and fellow bloggers joined together to bring you this post on how to pursue a plastic-free bathroom. Take a minute, go to your bathroom, and look around.

More than likely your eyes will fall on plastic toothbrushes, plastic shampoo bottles, make-up in plastic tubes, plastic razors, etc. We surround ourselves each morning with plastic everywhere. Let's see how we can do better. It's really not hard and together, we can make the world a better place (and our bathroom too!)
