    My daughter found a cute reusable plastic container.  It is square with a snap on lid.  Inside is a berry basket.  I have been using it everyday to bring grapes or cherries to work.  Drop the fruit in the berry basket, give a good wash and drop the basket in the container, snap on the lid and it is ready for my lunch.

    A friend of mine just got back from Sedona.  One of the restaurants used biodegradable straws called Hay! Straws.  She said they worked well and didn't change the taste of her cold coffee

    I use to use reusable grocery and produce bags all the time, but my grocery store really doesn't want us to do that during the COVID crisis.

      Hi Bonnie. I find that I can use my own bags in the self check-out. When there is no self check-out, I just ask the cashier to let me bag my own groceries. Everyone has been accommodating to that so far. I think they just can't touch the bags themselves, which I completely understand.
