    I switched to solid shampoo and conditioner a while ago, but was having difficulty figuring out how to store them without them getting soggy. Recently I found these scrubby bags, which let the bars dry between uses and allows me to use bits that are too small to hold otherwise! Very happy with this solution. I found these bags on ZeroWasteStore.com.

    Many states and countries have advisories on eating fish. Find out what is advised for your region. Do you think your diet choices fall within these guidelines? What steps do you need to take to make sure that they do?

    Having the information on my phone will make this easier, but it would be nice to have a list of brands to avoid for canned fish products since it isn't always clear where and how canned fish is caught.

      Hey April - yes, the devil is in the details!  My roommate buys "wild skipjack tuna" at Trader Joes, which says it is "sustainably caught without the use of FADs (fish aggregating devices) to minimize bycatch."   When she goes to Costco she buys "Safecatch" brand tuna and sardines.  (sadly, the tuna is  packaged in plastic). A website I saw said to look for the blue Marine Stewardship Council seal, or the Aquaculture Stewardship Council labels.
