    Brita filters & reusable water bottles are a great way to keep plastic water bottles out of the landfills! :)

    Today I had my grandpa bring reusable bags to the grocery store instead of using plastic bags at the register!

    Just a friendly reminder to help keep our springs beautiful! Always pack re-usable containers to avoid the chance of adding to the plastic or other single use container waste in our rivers.

    Today I did not have my reusable grocery bags in my car or on me, so I opted for one paper bag at the register. I like to shop with Publix knowing they offer the option to choose paper bags at checkout.

    I refuse to buy produce packaged in plastic bags. I always refuse single use plastic bags at the grocery store and prefer to buy my produce this way and just wash it at home to stay sanitary.
