The soaps we'll use on the trip.
This is a question that has come up on occasion. What soaps will we use during the trip and what is their impact on the environment? Of course, we have to wash clothes, dishes, and ourselves during the trip. We could use regular soap and bury the dirty water, but that will just eventually find its way into the ecosystem. Patty and I have searched around and found several liquid soaps that are plant-based, are biodegradable, are phosphate-free, and contain no harsh chemicals. So we can keep clean and have a clear conscience using these products.
