We have decided to post weekly results for the May Challenge. Instead of monthly, then we can see more often what we need to fix. I am happy with our results, but know we can do so much better. It is good to see everything laid out, it helps to see what we really need to work on. Below is the photo from Week 1 (May 1-7) of all our plastic that we used.
Over the past few months Ole and myself have been trying our hardest to eliminate plastic and waste producing food. This means taking our own bags to the store, fruit and veggie bags too. Avoid food packaged in plastic. Avoiding over packaged food. And so on. I think that we have been doing very well, but before I am going to allow us to get to comfy – we have to take a challenge.
This challenge will go the whole of May, feel free to join me it you want! This challenge will have 2 parts.

Goal #21 completed: Wash body with pure castile liquid soap
There have always been a few things that bothered me when it came to cosmetics and cleaning products. One of these was that I felt my skin never was clean with my bar of Irish Spring soap or my Dove body wash. Growing up I was always trying out different things, partly because as a teen I needed a soap that would clean my skin well so I would not be smelly hours later. For the longest time I just used a bar soap, and it just made my skin fell icky but I thought this was just the way it was going to have to be. However I was wrong.
