    One of the ways I have always helped to reduce use of plastic is following the three Rs, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Though now a days the recycle portion does not really occur, or is very limited where one can recycle their plastics.  So the first two Rs are important. I always will reuse my plastic bread bags, sandwich bags, freezer bags, etc. until they break. Washing them is easy and airing them out for reuse. Today with the virus, allowing green cloth bags to air out, sit in the sun, etc. for at least a week can most definitely kill any virus on them so they can be reused again, as these times are certainly generating more use of plastic bags instead.
