    In the midst of this climate crisis I am compelled to learn all I can and do all I can to reduce my environmental impact.

    Currently most of the packaging for toothpaste is plastic. How can you advocate for more alternatives through your purchasing power and influence in community?

    I’m embarrassed at how mindlessly I’ve been buying plastic tubes of toothpaste. I discovered that cutting the tube I thought was empty I’ve gotten another week’s supply of toothpaste. 
    I meet with a group of friends every week and plan to share with them my new recipe for toothpaste. 
    My family is hearing daily about things I’m learning in this challenge.

    Do some research on polystyrene and polyvinyl. How many items in your house already contain these toxins?

    My concern is that our greed and need for convenience is destroying the natural world.

      Annie, that’s great! Spreading awareness is such an important part of making an impact and the more you do it, the better you get at it. I’m sure your granddaughter thinks you are a very cool grandma.  😎
