    I’ve been on vacation the past two weeks and it’s definitely been a challenge to stay plastic free. But worth it!

    Today's the day! I leave for Hawaii in a few days and one of my challenges is... "If traveling, I will bring my own plastic free items (water bottle, grocery bags, collapsible food containers, utensils, straws, etc.) with me." I'll pack my reusables with me and I'm determined to go plastic free during my vacation!

    Today I went out to eat for lunch and forgot to bring a reusable container for my leftovers. I need to start remembering before I go out to eat, especially when July is in 3 days!

    9 days until we #BreakFreeFromPlastic!

    Last year, one of my goals was to bring a reusable container with me for leftovers whenever I go out to eat. Unfortunately, I've forgotten to do that lately, so I'm going to recommit to that habit in July!

    11 days left until the challenge begins!
