Homegrown salad

Growing lettuce at home is so easy and eco-friendly! By growing them on my window sill, I can enjoy plastic-free salads year-round and eliminate the environmental impact of transporting leaves to my plate. Plus, my son happily eats his veggies when he gets to harvest them himself! 😁

  1. Love this idea! I’m going to try it.

    Would love to know how you do shampoo!? I’ve tried a couple DIY and oh man, they were bad.

    1. Sorry to hear you had some bad experiences! The first shampoo bar I tried didn’t work for me either. Choosing the right shampoo depends on your hair type and your city water. I bought Ethique’s shampoo bar hair sampler with five different shampoo bars so I could try a few before committing. So far they’re working me way better than the first brand I tried. My favorite so far is St Clements, but I’m going to try them all before deciding 🙂

      But I find that whatever natural shampoo I use tends to build up in my hair (perhaps due to hard water). So I get better results if I alternate shampoos each washing. The other shampoo I use is Oneka organic liquid shampoo that I buy in bulk (refill my container) at any number of eco-friendly boutiques in Montreal. I also learned that with natural shampoos, I need to wash my hair twice (wash and repeat) to get it really clean.

      For conditioner, I dilute apple cider vinegar with water (1/2 apple cider vinegar and 1/2 water) and pour that over my hair after washing. Although you can leave it in, I prefer to rinse it out like normal conditioner.

      Hope this helps! 🙂
