This Blog Is The Same As All Other Blogs

I’m not entirely sure what sparked me to do this. But either way, I don’t think it matters. I’m doing something good, and with luck, it will improve my life.

I want to drastically reduce my ecological footprint. Mainly, by reducing the amount of plastic, paper and other non-eco-friendly products I use. I think initially, I read about ‘no Shampoo’. Somehow, this appealed to me, and upon looking into it, I found a ton of blogs from people that don’t use plastic. Yet another idea that I like. There are a metric shitton of articles about how bad plastic is for you, how it leeches into your food and gives you cancer or whatever. How true they are, I really don’t know. It probably isn’t all that bad, but I mainly want to reduce waste.

So my first step is to reduce the amount of “hygiene”/”beauty” products I use. Mainly shampoo, makeup, hair products. Once my supply of what I have runs out, I will stick to high quality natural products.

Incidentally, I just ran out of conditioner. So no more for me. I will miss it. Sort of. I honestly buy the cheapest stuff at the store and half of it does nothing to my hair anyway, so I guess I won’t. I still have bar shampoo, which isn’t going to run out any time soon.

As I currently, don’t shower daily, and therefore don’t wash my hair daily, hopefully, this will help my transition period a bit. I’ll start with shampooing every other wash. And use either baking soda or apple cider vinegar as conditioner. And hopefully having a slightly stinky head for a little bit will be well worth it. We shall see. There will be pictures!
