    What I am noticing is that things are changing.  At Sprouts they have little bags you can buy for $1  for dry goods.  Last year they had nothing.  Yes things are changing I am encouraged

    Sometimes I think there is so much more that I can do and it becomes a bit over whelming . But a little at a time I guess

    So I joined the challenge because it helps me to focus on getting better at paying attention  to all the plastic I use eventhough  I think I am doing a good job, there are a lot of areas That need a lot of work like paying attention to litter and how I can do something about it.

    Well my grandbaby came to town and I was running around and fell back to using more plastic than I would like but tomorrow is another day

    It was tough but we carried our recycled stuff with us on our road trip and brought our own containers. Not easy but we did it.

    Well it is a challenge going plastic free when you are on a road trip in northern Arizona and Southern Utah. But we have been doing it. Taking all are recycling with us. Reusable containers and picking up trash. Motels just don’t recycle😢

    How could you mitigate issues that may arise if the restaurant does not want to let you use your own containers at first?

    Some how I can't image that happening but I will see where the conservation goes
