I was trying to be a smart, environmentally-conscious consumer by purchasing a product that uses less plastic. And I was using it to refill a soap pump (a glass one) that I already have. Apparently, though, this product is designed for someone who's not planning to recycle, so they can feel good about putting less plastic that usual into the landfill. Well, I don't feel food about that. Note to self: look for the recycling symbol before purchasing!
I guess it's a non-issue at this point, really. I'm slowing making the move to all-natural products. As I run out of things, I'm trying hard to replace them with something healthier for our home, our bodies, and the planet. (Now I sound all crunchy-granola, don't I? Trust me, I've got a long way to go!) My point is, this soap won't be on my grocery list again. Even if it did have a recycling symbol.
