Turns out our dishwasher cleans our full-loaded and rinsed dishes just as well on the HalfLoad cycle as it does on the Regular cycle. Less water and energy used for a family of five. We are not perfect just working to do better.
I am very inspired by Swedish Eco-warrior, Greta Thunberg, and know that my children and grandchildren will eventually ask me what I did to help move away from massive fossil fuel consumption. Our baby steps can make a vast difference and although I am far from the perfect Eco-warrior I will do what I can to change certain habits in our home. Today, we start with these incredible durable bamboo straws 3 of which I carry easily in my bag/purse for those moments of convenience purchases.
