  • Reflection Question
    Food Say No to Plastic Bags
    How difficult was this challenge for you? What made it easy or difficult?

    Karen Rolland 8/01/2020 6:12 AM
    I wouldn’t say it was difficult but eye opening. I never realized how much plastic we use every day. I made some permanent changes since the challenge began but have a long way to go. What did make it challenging to make easy changes was the inability to take your own bags to the grocery store due to COVID. I will keep trying to improve each day.
