  • Reflection Question
    Food Say No to Plastic Bags
    How difficult was this challenge for you? What made it easy or difficult?

    This challenge was relatively easy as I usually opt for the recycled paper bags instead to carry groceries home. I love to cut and use these to hold recyclable materials for the week such as scrap paper, discarded mail, and cardboard until the next weekly trash/recycle pickup.
