    My buying habits have shifted to primarily online. I’m going to try Amazon Day shipping to reduce wasted materials and carbon emissions from multiple shipments.

    I loved the fashion footprint quiz! I’ve been donating clothes to ThredUP for years because they have an amazing recycling program, even for clothes they can’t sell.

    Some of the grocery habits I formed in 2020 are not as single-use plastic friendly as I would like. Has anyone found a delivery service that doesn’t use plastic bags?
