No new plastic bag to pick up poop

When I cared for a friend's dog over the weekend, I didn't use any of their roll of new dog poop bags. Instead I used random small plastic bags that I've been collecting from things such as bread and other food and product wrappings

Lifestyle

Educate families

We had a family over the weekend that wasn't aware of the need to reduce single use disposables, repair things when they break instead of throwing away, and food waste composting. They hope to start composting and are more aware of the need to repair and reduce things put in trash. They even took a blow up turtle tool floatie they popped to try to get it repaired.

Buy a terracycle plastic food waste box

We've been accumulating plastic tabs, wrappers, etc. from food packaging that aren't recyclable at the grocery store or in regular recycling. We'd like to purchase TerraCycle's zero waste box for our bits of plastic that we can't reuse or recycle

    Rinsed our plastic produce bags for reuse (again, and again and again).  We haven't had to take a new plastic produce bag in a very long time, hooray!

    Rinsed and reused plastic produce bags we couldn't avoid getting. Oops, didn't think to take a photo, next time!
