If you know me, you know I'm extremely concerned about our environment and planet. Which, to me isn't all that kooky, it's a means of survival. So, starting today, I'm going to do Wednesday posts dedicated to one easy tip or change you can make to be more kind to our planet, also known as, your home.
Today's tip of the day: Use bar soap instead of pump soap.
Reason: Plastic is one of the worst things that has happened to our environment, and our health. Plastic does NOT go away. We can recycle it, but only a few times, and then we can't anymore. Then what? Then it gets buried for our kids and our grandkids to deal with.
Those pumps in the soap bottles can't be recycled. And, like I said, those plastic containers can be recycled, but not infinitely, and the actual rate of recycling is extremely low. And think of how many you go through in ayear. And you're just one person.
So, bar soap is awesome because it uses itself up, and then it is no more. THAT IS THE GOAL! Yay!
So, if you want to make one change to help save the planet with me, there you go! You're on your way to earning a superhero cape!
