    We went grocery shopping this morning.  Inventoried all items in plastic (8 produce items, 1 cheese, 1 loaf of bread, paper towels (eek) and 1 coffee lid).  Action that Maggie and I will complete:  find alternative stores that sell same or similar product but without wrapping or in compatible materials.
