    Today, I decided to get lunch at a local takeaway place.  Most of their meals come in styrofoam.  I decided to order a different meal because I knew it would be wrapped in paper.

    As a homeowner, there are a lot of yard tools that are useful but rarely used.  I live in the same town as my family and we can share these tools.

    I have a long way to go to be plastic free and I expected that my sum would be higher.  Instead, I was using much less plastic than the average American.  However, most of the areas where I scored lower were due to my not using those products.  I need to focus more on the items that I do house that have single use plastics.

    I added silverware to my work box.  Now, when I am out for work, I will have my silverware and a cloth napkin to use vs. the ones provided by the restaurant/food truck.
