It’s early days in this new reality of . For the most part the people I know still live in the old reality. Climate collapse isn’t something they care about. They’re beginning to see it as extremes become the new norm. More drought in some areas, more intense storms, wildfires, and changes in the local weather seem to remind them of the larger global patterns. They're not responding in any meaningful way. Life goes on in the normal way they are used to living.

First up, let's talk about soap. Years ago I stopped buying shampoo in plastic bottles. I use Dr. Bronners for all personal hygiene. And recently started using it for dishes too. It works. It's not exactly the same as dish soap formulated in a liquid that is sold in a plastic bottle. But that's the point isn't it. We have to adapt. This one bar of soap does it all and the packaging is paper that I can compost in my garden. Multiply that by millions.

@dennyhenke just searching around I notice this: onegoodthingbyjillee.com/homem
Basically shred up soap in a blender, dump into water, dissolve in a pot. Hi temperature = more soap dissolved, so the end product is liquid but concentrated like dish soap. Also add some vinegar and glycerin.
Haven't verified if legit.
