Unbleached birdseye fabric cloths are what I have my eye on!
This holiday season, like all others, we'll be giving homemade gifts (no plastic) and discouraging plastic gifts from family for my daughter.

This place sounds like a dream! ... seriously, this is what I dream about.
Best of luck to in.gredients and I hope more business are inspired to do the same.

@EthelQ Bea at zero waste also has a silk shirt she unravels - then flosses with the silk thread.

We've been using baking soda (bought in bulk) as deodorant and it's been great. The baking soda is in a jar that used to house vanilla beans - the baking soda took on the delicious smell of vanilla!
I'm very interested in the mint tooth powder shown above. After my tooth paste runs out I'm not buying another tube.

Great giveaway!

Hmm, I wasn't given a spot to put my email because I'm signed in with Facebook. Hope I win, and hope you get a hold of me ;-)

Cheese, it's hard to find cheese in Duluth MN that isn't surrounded in plastic. Also, sour cream - my husband can eat it like ice cream!

If you acted like you were 100% plastic free I don't think I could read your blog.

You are an inspiration and a reminder to be mindful & forgiving.

Didn't know vinegar was useful in making broth. Thank you, our next batch will be even better!

Which vaccines did you decide to give your youngest? We're waiting on vaccines til my daughter is 2 - which is coming up. Reading about ALL the vaccines they want to shoot her up with is overwhelming. Curios which ones you chose. Thanks, Maria

I use Qtips to wash the part picture glass & mirrors that are right next to the frame - where the cloth just can't get close enough.

Looking forward to reading your book! We've been making small permanent changes in our house to be less plasticy and less wasteful. Thanks for all the great insight!
