    For Plastic Free July I switched from plastic razors to a stainless steel razor. It's definitely a closer shave!

    I switched to a bamboo toothbrush and toothpaste tabs to reduce plastic at home. Maybe when I run out of mouthwash I'll try mouthwash tablets.

    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

      I agree.  I was raised to leave a place better than i found it,pick up after myself.  Just makes the surroundings you are in a much nicer, neater, cleaner place,  I, for 1 like to eat, or enjoy an area free from trash.

      Nice! Maybe you'll enjoy the Chattahoochee River Cleanup that's July 13 11:00AM-1:00PM. We're meeting at the East Palisades Chattahoochee Nature Trail (its in Google Maps). Bring your water bottle! ^_^

    It sets an example for other people and because of FOMO people will want to try it too.

    So far so good. We cooked everything at home and avoided takeout which brings the most plastic into our home. How about you all? How's it going?

      OMG takeout can be such a struggle for that reason. Also trying to cook my way out of Plastic Free July XD

    How can you advocate for the importance of reducing packaging to the rest of your friends, family and larger community?

    By giving family free samples!
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Back in the Bowl
    Why is it so difficult to understand the impacts our purchases and waste have on other people, animals, and places? How might your experience with this challenge impact your future consumption and choices?

    I think because many people live in isolation and don't see the impacts of these choices. Many people also live estranged from nature and feel less connection to the land than they once did. After this challenge I think I will have formed more long-lasting habits to choose plastic-free options.

    Do some research on the toxic side affects of aluminum deodorant. After reading the side effects, can you think of instances where you may have experienced the side effects from this form of deodorant?

    I'm not sure, maybe feeling more forgetful?
  • Reflection Question
    Food Advocate For More Food Packaging Options
    Single use plastics have become normalized in our society to the point that most people don't see them as a problem. What would you say to a friend, colleague, or family member who may not understand why these disposables are an issue?

    Because a dumpster truck size amount of plastic enters the ocean every day. We have evidence of the harm it's doing to marine life and how it's affecting the water we drink and the air we breathe.
