I love Aquarian bath.  Their bar shampoo is amazing especially with an apple cider vinegar rinse.  One of my favorite plastic free personal care tips is to make or buy fabric cotton rounds.  I have a bunch and a zippered laundry bag.  I use them for cleaning my face with toner and then put them in the laundry bag that I hang from the towel rack.  When it's full I wash it and restock my jar.  No going to the store or buying cotton rounds in plastic packaging.  Also the fabric rounds are in cute colors and designs.

I really like the idea of activism and getting companies and the government to do the right thing.  I would like to write letters and join a larger movement but with a family I find it hard to make time.  I wish there was an organization I could join that would give me more directed advice on what needs to be done.  If anyone knows of some place like this, please let me know.  I give money to environmental advocacy groups and sign online petitions but am not sure how to go further without it becoming overwhelming.

 @BethTerry  @Elisa L Thanks for writing back.  I have to say I loved your book.  We think it is a manual to live by.  We made so many changes after reading all the great info you provided.  I have loaned it to friends and recommended it to family members.  Thank you so much for writing a book with such important information.

I really liked Lush shampoo bars at first but have changed my mind.  Some of the bars have a lot of dyes in them and SLS and the fragrances do not say phalate free.  Also I looked at some of their cosmetics and they contain parabens.  I tried their solid conditioner too and that leaves a residue in my hair.  Overall I think there are better choices like Liggetts.
