Plastic Free July Day 29

Plastic Free July Day 29: Liquid Castile Soap in Glass | Cellist Goes Green

I use bar soap to wash my hands in the bathroom, but I still like using liquid hand soap in the kitchen.  I use liquid castile soap diluted with water in a foaming soap pump.  You may be lucky to have liquid castile soap in bulk near you, or if you use a lot of it, you could buy the largest container available to cut down on packaging.  There is one company I have found which sells castile soap in glass bottles.  You can find it here.


If you aren't familiar with Plastic Free July, take a look at this post.  Basically, it's a month-long challenge to reduce the amount of disposable plastic you use.  It's a great starting point if you just want to give cutting out disposable plastic a try.
 
My first Plastic Free July was in 2013(!), and this month I'd like to highlight some of the things I do to reduce my plastic use, and some struggles.  Many things are part of my routine at this point (buying in bulk, refusing plastic silverware, etc.), but I am not perfect, and I always find this challenge to be a good time to refocus and look at what trash I am actually producing.
