    I like this plastic free challenge because it opens you mind to what's possible. When I'm in the grocery store. I'm looking at packaging and other things about the product I'm buying. I've cut back on 50% of the plastic that I would of used prior to this challenge. It's a small step but it is challenge :)

    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    Yes, more establishments are offering paper straws. Plastic is still mainstream but I think change is slowing coming.

    It's a challenge everyday to find items that don't have plastic. All these add up when I think of my daily footprint. 
    This exercise allowed me to reflect on how much more I can do. I will challenge myself to be make better decision when it come to helping our planet.

    I join the Plastic Free Eco Challenge so I develop more sustainable habit when it comes plastics usage. My goal is to continue to learn and live a life that uses our planet resources in a good way.  Onward to the next 30 days of learning.
