As I said in a previous post I am going with the flow. I am replacing my plastic things as they run out or as I find better solutions. This morning I finally ran out of toothpaste. I have been squeezing this tube in every possible way to get just one more use out of it, but today I really believe that I got the last out of this tube.
Of course this meant that I had to find an alternative. I have known that one can use baking soda instead of toothpaste for years but I personally have never used it. I went out and bought organic baking soda from one of my local stores. (Are and hammer comes in a cardboard box so that is a great alternative as well.) I used a plastic bag that I have reused many-many times to put it in for the time I bought it and transported it home. At home I transferred it into a small mason jar (you may recognize the jar from my Trader Joes post. As always Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle).
I made a label so everyone knows what the mystery white powder is. I'm excited about this new change,once again it takes me one step closer to a plasticless life.
