We have been evolving. At first we just used regular dish detergent. Then we switched to environmentally friendly detergent. Then it dawned on us that plastic bottles are not as sustainable as the cardboard so we switched to powder in cardboard. Now we are at – zero waste! With the addition of a cute little wooden scoop we are all set! Beyond this is possibly homemade but for now…Of course this was achieved with a visit to The Soap Dispensary. My sister-in-law was the catalyst for the latest visit or, maybe more accurately, the excuse. She really wanted to go and it gave us a chance to catch up at the same time. I’m lucky to have people in my life that think similarly.My conditioner has gone zero waste too. Could this be the last plastic bottle to ever hold my conditioner?As a special treat for my occasional bath time, I picked up some Epsom Salt. With no packaging involved I figured “What the heck”. Maybe I will use some after the Sun Run to help relieve the pain!
“The intention of this way of life [voluntary simplicity] is not to dogmatically live with less. It’s a more demanding intention of living with balance. This is a middle way that moves between the extremes of poverty and indulgence.”
