RancherMan & I work outside every day, rain or shine. We’re either working cattle or fixing fences. There’s garden work and tractor work. Day in, day out – we’re outside working. Now we LOVE our lives here don’t get me wrong, but sun protection is something we take very seriously.
We’re careful to wear our Sun-Protective Shirtswhen we’re working outside. And for my small blue Ford 32 hp tractor, RancherMan made sure I had a heavy canvas canopy to protect me from the sun. But his larger tractor didn’t come with a canopy, just a ROPS (roll bar).
Now I hated that he wasn’t protected and constantly nagged I mean reasonedwith him to get something to protect himself from the sun. But he protested mightily, saying: “I’m having trouble finding one that fits the ROPS on my tractor. Plus I’d want a rigid canopy. And since I often work around trees when I’m mowing I just don’t know if I should get one for my tractor”
Recently I became interested in something I’d previously never really given much thought to: our toothbrushes.
What a shame that these things are sold entombed in a hunk of plastic (not recyclable in my area) and the toothbrush itself was made of plastic too. How crazy did it now seem to use this plastic toothbrush for 3-4 months and then toss it in the trash only to replace it with a new one and repeat adinfinitum.
Maybe it was time for me to put my money where my mouth was (groaaaaan – bad pun intended. LOL!)
So I started researching and found there are toothbrushes made of biodegradable, compostable bamboo. I’m intrigued!
The Woodzee company graciously sent a small supply of their bamboo toothbrushes for me to try.
