California gateway to the Sierras. We are between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite
Small house society member living in a 400 sq ft cottage Vegetarian, zero waste home mindset. Strive to live a less is more, organic lifestyle. Love all activities outdoors.
I take a back pack with me when I go for a walk around the parks, lakes, rivers in my area of Calaveras County here in the California Sierra and get some exercise and pick up garbage along the way. In one months time I got $10 worth of recyclables.

maryetta To answer your question, let me ask a question. If you lived 1000 miles from the nearest church how would you worship the Lord? I suggest you simply get in to reading the Bible, having prayer time, and trusting the Lord to show you what he wants you to be doing with your life.
The Lord is where you are. It does not require that we belong to any church or group. Many many times in the Bible we read of men and women the Lord used as they were alone in the world.
I do however believe that as long as a church preaches from the Bible, and teaches that Jesus the way the truth and the light that one is on firm ground Biblically.

Perfect message for the imperfect times we are living in.
As a side note for glass, plastic, aluminum for the recycling center that we collect when out for daily walks we use king size pillow cases which are then washed and line dried when we get home from the recyling center. As for the wet items in the inside compost bucket that we take outside when half full to dump in the composter, we find using shredded cardboard in the bucket absorbs the liquids for fruits, vegetables so we don't end up with any slime in the bucket.

Also wanted to note the type of laundry soap you use can also affect sweating issues. If you add one cup of plain vinegar to the rinse water cycle you will remove all soap/detergent residue and this helps a lot, because soaps have salts in them and if they stay in the fabric, next to the skin they can become like a wick and draw moisture out of the body and thus you find you have moisture under the arms, around the waist, in the crease areas of the legs etc.

@Eve Stavros I have found that the natural food stores in the more 'green' areas and near universities here in the states tend to be the most package free minded. Its where we got our deodorant stone years ago. So you are spot on per Europe and how many areas are far ahead of us here in the states.
We use a Thai deodorant stone and have for a good dozen years. No packaging. And if you eat whole healthy foods, drink plenty of water and get good exercise and then take a shower you shouldn't smell.
