    I have found that I really enjoy mug cake mixes, but not the large amount of packaging they come in. Lucky me I found a DIY mix that I can make in large batches to keep on hand! Not totally plastic free/waste free, but far less packaging than the old way.

    My sister-in-law just started a part-time job with Less Than, a low to zero waste company in Norfolk! They have their pop-up trailer at the Norfolk Botanical gardens right now open from 9am to 2pm through Sunday, and we hope to visit this weekend. They also have a store front in downtown Norfolk, and will be opening one in Virginia Beach soon! It is so great seeing a plastic free and low waste business opening in our area. You can find out more about the store here: https://golessthan.com/

      I have literally NEVER been so excited. Hoping we can all go check it out soon. Let us know how cool it is if you make it out this weekend!
