Earthy Bar Soap Seeks Frazzled Shower Buddy
Hi, I'm Patchouli + Cedarwood Bar Soap!  I'd love to get grounded with you. People tell me I'm down to earth, but I'm not sure if they mean I smell like earth, or that I make them feel grounded. I like to think it's both.

Build Your Zero Waste Kit: Six Essentials

What is a Zero Waste Kit? It’s simply a small collection of essential, reusable, everyday items that — without taking up much space — make a huge difference in your daily contribution to the waste stream.

Add a couple of glass or metal containers if you have the space and use them in place of takeout containers to make even more of an impact.
