Faye's Actions


Reusable Face Coverings

Disposable masks are made of mixed materials and not recyclable. When possible, I will reduce my waste while protecting myself and others by wearing a reusable face covering when in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.



Share My Actions

I will post to my social media networks about how reducing our plastic use is important for both environmental justice and conservation.

One-Time Action


Give Some Green Gratitude

I will give a shout-out on social media to a local company, coworker, friend or family member for their plastic free or green efforts.

One-Time Action


Skip the Straw

I will keep 2 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill per day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

    So I'm having family over tomorrow and I'm going to try to keep the plastic use limited. I got compostable plates and there will be no plastic utensils!

You can even type in your zip code to see where you can drop off bags to be recycled! I'm definitely doing this, especially since it's more than just grocery bags that can be recycled!

    It really bums me  out that reusable bags are still restricted, although I get it. Our pantry is full of plastic bags because I refuse to just throw them out. I'm saving them to recycle somehow...anyone else doing this?
