Tomorrow I will post an update on how I did with my May goals but I thought it best to get going on my June goals. I found having some concrete goals, like 20 paper towel free days,  really made it easier than deciding I would just use “less” paper towels.

  • Make 2 batches of homemade strawberry freezer jam.
  • Line dry 15 loads of wash.
  • Figure out an easy, practically waste free hummus recipe. I have been buying store bought hummus but we can’t even recycle the plastic tubs anymore. Too much waste,  time to make my own!
  • Make 4 cloth snack bags for trips. On a recent trip to a park, enjoying the beautiful views and wildlife, I couldn’t help but think how prepackaged snacks and the waste they produce is rather anti-nature.
  • Figure out a replacement for shampoo. Baking soda/vinegar is probably the first thing I will try.
  • Make 6 loaves of homemade bread for lunches/sandwiches/toast.
  • Camp out one night.

Do you have any waste free goals for June?

    I like how you keep track of your progress! It’s always nice to look back to the “beginning” and compare it to how far you’ve come and what you have changed.

    I recently achieved one goal I had for a while, which was making your own body lotion: check! Another thing I am looking into is more eco-friendly or waste-free beauty products; I have been experimenting with DIY blush, and I’m on search for a better mascara alternative. I’m not at “make-up free” yet, so unfortunately that industry is not very plastic free.

    Good luck with your goals!

    Fun to follow your progress!
    Check out Alton Brown’s “turbo hummus” recipe. Super easy. We just get at the deli counter [in our own container], though…
    Good luck.
