    Today I joined the local Buy Nothing facebook group. Not plastic-specific but it's great to find like-minded people out there!

    Our office has adopted 2 bioswales in our neighborhood which we help to maintain by picking up litter and clearing debris.  It feels great to be part of a  team to help our streets look better and keep our plants healthy so they can keep us healthy!

    At the grocery store this weekend I realized how difficult living totally plastic-free would be.  With the exception of bulk foods and produce almost everything has some plastic packaging incorporated.    :-(

      It's so hard, the last time I went they weren't charging for plastic bags at check out but were charging 5 cents for paper bags... seems so backwards.

    This morning I was thinking about how the pandemic forced us to change from liquid soap to bars of soap because suddenly liquid soap was no longer available. But I'm thankful for that now because we're buying less plastic - no more plastic pump bottles and refill bottles!  I'm a bar soap convert.
