In the garden and beyond

All washed up

 Plastic pollutes our oceans


After all those hours in the garden mowing, planting, lifting and sweating, a nice hot shower is one of life’s simpler pleasures.

Did you know that the way you shower can help you adopt a more organic and environmentally-minded lifestyle?

If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of people using plastic shower poufs to lather up, you may not know that you are contributing to the already massive pollution in our oceans.

Step away from plastic shower poufs. I don’t care how colorful or cheap they are, when it comes to your health and the environment, they’re “all washed up,” i.e., done for, failed.

I’ll tell you more in my next post.

P.S. If you haven’t done so already, install one of these water saving shower heads available at most hardware stores.
