This month, we focused on opportunities for waste-free body hygiene! We as consumers continue to learn about the harmful chemicals that are often used to make store-bought body products like carcinogenic dyes & endocrine-disrupting phthalates. Coupled with the number of plastic bottles contributed to landfills every year, we’ve started to wonder why we don’t just make all our personal care products at home?
A group of us got together recently to learn from ZJZWers Laura & Annie about how to make our own deodorant and body wash! Using simple ingredients that can be purchased in bulk or in glass bottles, these homemade versions of our hygiene must-haves are definitely cleaner & greener.
Recipes are below for you to try at home!
