    SO progress on my challenge, I have decided to reuse my glass containers for water, food storage and dishes. I have several reusable bags for groceries and produce. I use paper bags for trash bags when I get bagged groceries. I reuse or donate items instead of putting them in the trash. I don’t use plastic straws for my drinks anymore. I feel great!!
