I don't use shampoo.
It was around this time last year (though not specifically on Earth Day) that I read an article on "No poo" and decided to try it out. Instead of shampoo I use a little bit of baking soda dissolved in water. I do still use a tiny bit of conditioner.
The results? I can go quite a bit longer between hair washings (though of course the rest of me requires the same amount of hygiene). My hair is at least equally clean, healthy, & easy.
I will say that it's not as much fun to apply--a head full of suds feels great, and baking soda...doesn't. But it's cheaper & more natural, which are both important things to me.
In the same spirit of that "Earth Day" change, this year I decided to give up all disposable paper products for a month, starting today. I thought it would be easy, since we already use cloth napkins, and rarely use paper towels (and even more rarely use paper plates or plastic cutlery)...then my Mom pointed out that I'd have to go 100% cloth diapers. I love cloth diapers, but not 100% love. So I abandoned my plan and came up with an easier one.
It's a little sewing project that I didn't get done today, but maybe tomorrow I'll have pictures. Stay tuned....
