@Sarah Agreed! I thought we were using a natural toothpaste that was good for you. However, my daughter kept getting weird little blisters in her mouth under her tongue. Finally, her pediatrician said it might be the SLS in toothpaste! Yup, a week or so after using a non-SLS (JASON) toothpaste her blisters were gone.

I want one! I am going to find out more about the tare machine and give the information to a local grocer and our local co-op market.

Have you heard back from them yet? I hate to order online too but my area is very rural and it is more convenient to order products online than to drive an hour to a city area. I found that Crate and Barrel (where I get my Weck canning jars) is very conscious about their packaging - all paper, all recyclable. The only plastic was the return label/receipt.

Thanks for sharing! I finally got my mother to buy an insulated stainless steel bottle for her morning coffee. When I showed her pictures and articles of trash from bins, beaches, etc. and told her that she throws away over 300 styrofoam cups a year and the fact that its toxic too seemed to resound with her, finally. We all need to encourage our friends and family to think about their waste.

My favorite personal care tips - all the uses of baking soda! I now wash my hair with it and as a deodorant (mixed with coconut oil, tea tree ,lavender), which is the best and cheapest natural deodorant I've ever used. I do not like it for teeth, find it too abrasive for my sensitivity.

I have a Waring like this one that was given to me at my wedding 20 years ago! I've used it many times per week and it is just now starting to leak at the bottom. So, maybe just a new gasket? Motor still running strong. I am impressed and hope your lasts just as long. @Melody I just put a little soap and hot water in my blender (before food gets dried/stuck on) and rinse; haven't had any problems. I"ve also put it in the dishwasher without any problems.

Kale does't stick around long in my house (my 12-year old veggie hater devours this) when I crisp it in the oven or dehydrate it. Wash and pat kale dry (or spin it in a salad spinner), sprinkle with a little olive oil, salt, onion & garlic powder. Put in 300 deg. oven until wilted and crispy or as desired. My oven is convection so I can actually dehydrate in it. I use the same recipe but set the temp. at 100 degrees. Takes a few hours but nice, crispy kale chips. If you don't eat them all (they rarely last in my house) you can put in a glass or stainless airtight container and they will stay crispy. Enjoy!
