Acorn: Seed of Wisdom ~ Moon: Realm Between Conscious & Unconscious
As Rumi says: There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the Earth. It begins with taking an honest evaluation of your habits, lifestyle and purchases.  Very few things in life can be in our control.  This is an area where you do have choices.  Start simple. Changes must come gently so that habits can be created.
I do not purchase ziplocks or containers. When I make my purchases, I always have an awareness of how the packaging can be re-used. Burrito wraps usually come in re-closable bags. Perfect ziplock. Organic raisens (from Costco) come in very thick ziplock bags. Many organic frozen vegetables also come in re-zip bags.
What if our religion was each other? If our practice was our life?  If prayer, our words? What if the temple was the Earth? If forests were our church? If holy water - the rivers, lakes, and ocean? What if meditation was our relationships? If the teacher was life?  If wisdom was self-knowledge?  If love was the center of our being? ~ Ganga White

Household Chemicals
~For cleaning, all you really need is: Vinegar & water, or Baking Soda with a little water to make a paste, or Liquid Castile Soap ~~~~~ ~Glasstop stove: Make a paste made of baking soda & water. You can also use Castile soap. Just squirt, then scrub with a hot, wet cloth. For really tough marks, a razor blade and water. -Toilet: Squirt in some Castile soap, let it soak for at least 30 minutes. Scrub. Repeat if necessary. It leaves a shine. Bath/Shower: Either baking soda or Castile soap Removing labels: If soaking in water doesn’t work, then make a paste out of baking soda and coconut oil. I use my fingers to spread it over the label area. Leave it for at least 24 hours. For some items, I use a heat gun to get the ‘first’ layer off, then use the paste to get the remaining glue. Always leave it on for 24 hours. (note: you can also use the baking soda/coconut oil paste as a face wash) Water build up (ie; in teapot): Soak in white vinegar & water.
