    Since plastic recycling has declined in many places due to the loss of the recycling market, reducing plastic use is more important than ever!

    Great job on getting rid of your disposable cup habit! How does it make you feel? What's next on your list to reduce your waste?

    We even brought reusable mugs and water bottles on vacation! There were a few times when we got disposables, but we brought as much as possible that could be recycled home with us.
