Change Your Shower Habits

If you take a look at the personal care products in your shower, chances are you will see a lot of plastic.  Some of it is recyclable, some not, but no matter what, almost every shampoo, conditioner and soap we use will come in some form of plastic.  When I was going through the house, trying to reduce waste, the shower was one area we were able to make a lot of progress.

Logging in New Jersey State Parks?

"Those in favor of the bill mention forest stewardship, which is also a valid concern."

New Jersey has introduced a bill in its state legislature that could allow private companies to begin logging operations in state parks.  Not surprisingly, this bill has strong viewpoints on either side, but environmentalists are very concerned about the potential impact this bill could have on wildlife and public access to parks.
