A few posts back I decided to find a way to shampoo without purchasing products in plastic bottles.
This weekend, in Portland, I managed to find a bar of J.R. Ligget’s. I have now used the product three times. MUCH better than Dr. Bronners for my hair. This is a product I could use regularly.
Still, I’m in experimentation mode, so I also picked up soeme goat’s milk soap, another recommendation from Grist for non or less polluting alternatives. The soap isn’t packaged or labled, a hazard of the local/handmade vendor. Which I really appreciate, but having been conditioned to identify by logo and tag line I can’t remember the maker’s name. Now I have to do some research to find out who made the soap and how to give them kudos (or thumbs down, should that be the outcome.)
The second benefit of the bar shampoo is the ability to pass through post 911 era security gates without having to dump my latest purchase. I’ve still not adjusted and am constantly forced to toss brand new bottles of this and that. Last trip, coming home from Virginia, it was a jar of jam. I didn’t even consider jam to be a liquid. They let me bring home the Smithfield bacon though.
