    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    I wish I could decrease my plastic consumption even more. Sometimes it feels impossible to get around certain types of plastic.

    How can you think outside the box (or bag!) when it comes to disposables?

    I must admit when I first started to bring my reusable containers with me to restaurants it felt quite foreign but now it's become second nature for me!

      Love this! I am implementing this more right now. What I usually do if they do not give some kind of biodegradable option is to just finish my food or only order something I know I can finish in one sitting because I do not want to use those containers... but you have a way better idea lol & then I wouldn't have to gorge myself either lol
