  • Reflection Question
    Food Cook a Zero-Plastic Waste Meal
    Do an inventory of your kitchen to see how many single-use plastics you've used in the past. What are some resuable alternatives to these commonly used products? What would your impact be if you switched all the single-use products from your inventory to reusable?

    I used to use plastic wrap to seal leftovers. Now I have silicone seals that cover bowls of leftovers. They work great.

    I love watching the vegetables grow at little each day. And I love the fresh basil - I made pesto this afternoon.
