A big pile this month.  I can’t believe we only have two months to go!  It is going to be hard to break the habit of hoarding straws home in my wallet!

This month I want to feature a fun new plastic-free item: Ice Cube Trays!  We had these old trays that I inherited from my parents, I remember them from when I was a kid.  There are no markings on them, no labels.  I was never confident that they were BPA free or safe for our bodies.

Then I heard about Onyx Stainless Steel Ice Cube Trays.  We ordered two online and immediately put them to use.
