    Alice Water's book, We Are What We Eat, is very insightful on a host of ways to nourish people using regenerative farming and other thoughtful practices.

    This challenge has surfaced opportunities to give more thought to my buying habits, esp. laundry detergent and cat litter. I should have known better as 1) my parents were depression-era babies and naturally saved almost everything to repurpose or reuse, 2) I grew up on a farm during a time when we were on our own to dispose of waste (i.e., think compost and burn pile) 3) it has always pained me to throw away (or recycle) perfectly functional packaging like tubs, jugs, bins, jars, etc.  I found a video that has inspired me to safely repurpose jars for storage...just need to slow the inflow of jars that fall into that category.

      It's "MicroMoment: Repurposing Jars for Food Storage" by the RoseRed Homestead channel on YouTube

    Team, has anyone found a good laundry detergent that requires much less packaging? i've seen ads for paper-like sheets of detergent. Are they any good? I know they might be fine for travel/sink-washing, but how are they for everyday home laundering?

      I looked at the ingredients for that product and even sent it to a friend who started a successful bath/laundry soap business when I live in New Zealand...he said it looked worth trying.  Just haven't tried it yet.  Let me know if you do.  :)

    I aim to buy cat litter filling an empty plastic jug.
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    The heavens declare the glory of God. The whole earth is full of His glory. Nature is evidence of a Creator God. It's healthy for us to spend time in places that remind us we are part of something larger than ourselves. Using all of our senses to experience the wonders of creation feeds our eternal souls.
