Ever find yourself at the grocery store without your reusable bags? Again?
Me too. I won't buy mushrooms packaged in plastic, never mind take a single-use plastic bag to carry my groceries home. I literally feel sick in my stomach knowing that the plastic will be poisoning the planet, forever.
So, my solution is either to carry food in my pockets, or find a lovely cardboard box at the store! It's so convenient! All of the food arrives to the store in cardboard so there's a lot of boxes around. The big stores will have them holding product on shelves, but you might have to ask at a smaller store for them to grab one from the back. Easy and eco-conscious. And, you're helping the store by recycling their boxes for them! Win. Win. Win!
A quick tip for an easy trick to save wasted water in the kitchen!
There are many communities around the world, and here at home, who don't have clean water. I feel lucky to live in a place that has clean, minimally treated, running water. That gratitude makes me look for ways to conserve this blessed gift.
Everyone wants their home to smell great and there are many options out there. For me, it has to be natural. I don't want to be adding more air pollutants or toxic chemicals to my home or the planet in general. So, choose an actual essential oil blend. And, this is where it gets tricky because a lot of products out there have some misleading labels. What you want to see somewhere on the label is "100% essential oils". And, essential oils have healing properties!
edit: As mentioned in the video, if you'd like your home to smell like cookies you could diffuse essential oils like vanilla, ginger, cinnamon or a combination of all three! Some great oils to diffuse in the home if you're getting sick are oregano, thyme, eucalyptus, lemon, peppermint or a combination of some of these. There are a lot of oils that are good for supporting the immune system and for colds and flu, and that sounds like another video in the making!
