Did you know that the Live for Tomorrow Laundry Liquid is 8x concentrated? That means less water, less packaging and more loads. These three bottles do 150 loads while that large plastic jug only does 120. LFT Liquid Laundry comes Unscented, Lavender or Rosemary Orange Blossom.
Yesterday was World Water Day. It's a UN initiative to get people talking about the value of water and what that means. Here in Western Canada we don't often need to think about access to clean water. We're lucky to be blessed with snow, glaciers & rainfall. But we're seeing our glaciers melt and much more unpredictable weather. This will threaten our (and the world's) water supply. How do you value water? Photos are of Alsek Lake, Alaska.
I got a few new products in the week! Nelson Naturals toothpaste. I love this stuff, my teeth feel so good after brushing with it. I don't have it available as refills yet, but I'm hoping to in the future. For now I have a variety of flavours to see which are most popular. And there's bamboo toothbrushes online now too. How you tried shampoo & conditioner bars? They are the ultimate low waste product. beYOU for all hair types by Bottle None. Made in Vernon.
Should I buy the original package or a refill? It really depends on your situation. The ultimate goal is for everyone to be using refills, but there are times when getting a product in it's original package is the best option. If you're new to refilling, getting your first order in the original packaging is a great choice. Then you know exactly what you're getting. The original packaging contains ingredient lists and instructions for use. Once you've used that first portion up then you can get refills. Live for Tomorrow (LFT) packages their retail sizes in stainless steel bottles instead...
Last Thursday we did a test fill and deliver day to friends and a few other people who would be forgiving to any mistakes that were made (and there were!). Systems were tested and lessons learned.
