    I've been eating more veggies now that I have some growing in my own yard! :)

    If anyone is looking for a zero-waste alternative for their shower routine...I recommend this shampoo bar by Bestowed Essentials. The bar comes in a metal tin for safekeeping. Super easy swap that will save a significant amount of plastic waste.

    Being quarantined has allowed me to have more time to investigate zero waste alternatives for my lifestyle. I recently switched to a shampoo bar in an attempt to reduce the amount of plastic I'm consuming. So far so great!

    Energy Heat and Cool Naturally
    What are other ways you could use the power of the sun to reduce your own environmental footprint?

    I can use the sun to naturally dry my clothes instead of using electricity. Plus that means more time outside :).

    This whole quarantine thing is pushing me to grow more of my own herbs and spend time in the sunshine!

  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Go For A Daily Walk Outside
    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    Was starting to get a little stir crazy with quarantine. A walk really helped clear my head and I feel a ton better and more productive!

    Walked to a nearly park with the dogs! Didn't realize how many parks were in walking distance from my house.

    My family grows tomatoes and they're finally ripe! We ate a bunch of them today! Felt good to be eating home grown foods!

      Fantastic! Enjoy! Get a basil plant and make some mozz and you can have homemade caprese! :)
