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

    Yeah, my plastic consumption is under average in my country. But, I know I could do more. Yes, sometimes I am sooo exhausted, I choose the easy way, and mostly this is the bad plastic way. It should be the other way: easier to take the non plastic way.

    With the added mindfulness of reducing your packaging, what have you noticed about the amount and type of single use plastics used for packaging when you shop in the grocery store?

    Depending on the store you visit. It is very hard to find unwrapped items in bigger companys, in lokal based stores it is easyer.

    How can you advocate for the importance of reducing packaging to the rest of your friends, family and larger community?

    Easy: creating selfmade bags, cosmetics, jams and so on as a gift.

    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?

    Since I join this event for a few years now, there is not much more to do, but one thing I still found: I changed plastic straws into some made of glass (coming with a cleaning brush😉)

    Less sugar! Still sugar is hidden in so many things we eat.
