I've really been struck by how much we waste as a culture. Food, packaging, you name it. Maybe it's reading the Molly books in the American Girl series and seeing how the whole country worked together to conserve for the war effort, maybe it's because today is trash day.
Around here, I've been waiting until something is ALL gone before going out to replace it. That's new for me. I do use it eventually, but I tend to stockpile things. Instead I'm using all those travel-sized shampoos here and there that are half full, lotions, deoderant, saline solution.
And when the shampoo is gone, I'm going to use Kimberly's method of hair washing. She says it's been great for shine and reducing tangles. Something the girls would definitely appreciate.
Kimberly is an amazing woman, a kindred spirit--a woman I'm glad so blessed to call my friend. And even a face-to-face friend, at that! (Though we did meet through this blogging world.)
She did a post (just for me!) with some recipes and links I've been requesting. Go here and check it out--shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent.
