    What are the benefits of switching to bamboo toothbrushes? How would you implore others in your community to make this switch as well?

    Keeping this simple plastic waste out of the environment feels great! Also, bamboo toothbrushes are just as great as regular ones!
  • Reflection Question
    Food Cook a Zero-Plastic Waste Meal
    Do an inventory of your kitchen to see how many single-use plastics you've used in the past. What are some resuable alternatives to these commonly used products? What would your impact be if you switched all the single-use products from your inventory to reusable?

    I am slowly starting to switch certain items to reusable. Some plastic is unavoidable, unfortunately.
