    The EWG site is really interesting to understand what ingredients used in products can be harmful.  I plan to use it for reference for my personal use and when researching products for Owned Brands.

    I have worked on downsizing what I have, and it makes me a lot more thoughtful on anything I bring into my home.  I buy less online and avoid purchases I can't return.

    Practicing work-life balance provides my head some relief and clarity.  I also feel more present in what I'm doing.

    I've added copies of the clean 15 and dirty dozen to my phone for easy reference while I'm grocery shopping.  It slipped my mind a few times, but I'm doing a better job this week of sticking to it.

    The Buy Nothing neighborhood sites on Facebook have been such a great way to give things no longer wanted or needed to people in your area that do.  I've also made a lot of connections with people in my community through the site.
