    I enjoyed getting to clean up. I was simple and beneficial. It was great getting to do something that might be small but still make a difference.

    I made a box cheesecake the other day and was extremely pleased to see that the mix was packaged in in paper bags! Progress is being made.

    I hope everyone is going strong in our plastic free month! And of course I hope everyone is finding new things to bring into their daily routines permanently.

    Started making my "Bagsket." A basket made out of plastic bags. I've made one before but decided that this time I should actually weave it

    I would have never though that diving into my local trash trucks services would be so interesting. Just goes to show you that even boring sounding things can be interesting.

    So for the 8 people in the Clean the Seas & save the bees team, I just want you to know that while I was looking for a team I thought that name was ingenious. I told my mom and now she is making  shirts that have that saying on it. I'm not at all kidding.

    How does buying used differ from buying new? How does each purchasing decision make you feel?

    I've never bought used things for my pets. But that is only because I already have stuff that I can use for them. But reusing them makes me feel good. Because 1. I'm not wasting money on something I don't need and 2. why waste something you already have?
