Practically Waste Free Goals

I am pretty proud that I seem to have kicked the chewing gum habit. The quantity of mail we receive is quite reduced and I am composting both in my garden and using our local compost pickup. I am also trying toothpaste-free to see how that works for me and have been trying out some deodorant options for when the last of my store bought, natural, $$ deoderant runs out. In addition to these works-in-progress I thought I might add a few more goals for the month of May.

  1. Hang 5 loads of wash. First I need to clear out the clutter from around the drying rack.
  2. Camp out 1 night. I am a firm believer that the more time we spend outdoors the more appreciation we have for nature and the more inspired I am to be practically waste free.
  3. Plant more vegetables: tomatoes, lettuce, more carrots, broccoli.
  4. Go 20 days free of paper towels. I try really hard to skip the paper towels and I am usually good about it but a goal should help.
  5. 20 chocolate free days. Chocolate is a big vice and because we have to be strictly dairy free it isn’t something I can buy in bulk. It is time to seriously reduce the chocolate and associated waste!!

Any goals you would care to share?

    Achievable goals! My goal is to finally make my own lotion. It has been on my list for some time, but for some reason I have not committed to it.
