So today’s challenge is to make homemade toiletries.
I was pretty excited when I woke up because I thought a friend and I would be making lotion today, but she was feeling ill. I hope she feels better soon because I’m starting to run low on lotion!
I thought about making everything else on the Zero Waste Nerd’s post, but I still have a bunch of prescription toothpaste left, and I think my dentist would likely kill me if I stopped using a toothpaste with fluoride again(full disclaimer: I took bad care of my teeth, don’t be like me!). I’m also not really into scrubs, I have a lot of lip balm left for a while, I don’t use hair spray, and what is the difference between lotion and a moisturizer?
Instead I used the day to take care of a little bit of produce shopping and tend my recycling situation.
Recycling day! I hate recycling. It’s always a frustrating annoyance, especially since we don’t have a pick up service for it. I’m hoping the zerowaste lifestyle will mean fewer trips to get rid of this stuff. Come on buisnesses, I need more places to buy unpackaged bulk food than 40 miles away! #zerowaste #salisbury #sby #recycling #garbage #eco #vegan
As you can see, I hate recycling. It’s just as much of an annoyance to me as taking out the garbage. Seems like a good enough reason to live zero waste, if entirely selfish.
When I got home I cleaned out my fridge and made everything look nice in it.
My mostly zerowaste fridge! I finished up grocery shopping today and gave the inside a good scrubbing. I’m pretty pleased with how it looks! I tagged the three companies that need to start using entirely recyclable/compostable packaging that are in my fridge, laying waste. #vegan #eco

After I publish this, I will be tidying up the rest of my room.
