Go green with handmade Soap Sacks!

We all want to do our part to help the environment. We try to recycle what we can, reuse what we can... But the #1 goal is really to REDUCE waste. That's why I like to buy handmade soap off of www.etsy.com. Most crafters are good about not over-packaging their products, and the boxes and envelopes can be reused. Body washes, conditioners, and shampoos all produce SO MUCH waste!
But, I lovelovelove body poufs that you use with body wash. Unfortunately, they don't work so well with bar soap. That's why I created the Soap Sack. Just throw your bar of soap it, and you're good to go until the soap is gone. Some I make with plain cotton, some are cotton on one side, hemp on the other. The hemp feels wonderful, exfoliating your whole body. :) What I like best about this is that there's not icky slimy soap dish. The soap and bag air dry, leaving your shower clean. Also, if you have several "slivers" of soap that you would normally just throw away, you can toss them all in the bag, and they "fuse" together as you use them. Another way to reduce waste!
These, along with original handcrafted hemp jewelry can be purchased in my Etsy shop!
