    I feel like I did pretty well this year for plastic free July. One thing I did notice and try to cut back on is the one time use plastic cup I was getting with my morning iced coffee. That one was a little tricky for me to go completely away with but I was more conscious about it and got it less than normal. I tried making iced coffee at home and although it didn't taste as good as it does from Tim Hortons it wasn't too bad and gives me something to work on perfecting. I was able to recycle the cup at least but do still want to work on cutting it completely out.

    It reaches a lot of people. A quick post I was able to make had a lot of my friends on social media commenting on it and also some even said they were inspired to do the same thing and make simple changes to use less plastic.

    How does working with others to clean up your community make you feel?

    It was really nice seeing people come together to clean up the shoreline around the zoo. Even just having a handful of people can make a big difference and hopefully even inspire others around who happen to see people picking up trash.

    It has been going well so far, I was up in Sandusky over the weekend and sadly saw a lot of plastic trash on the beach. Thankfully I was able to spend some time picking a lot up and trying to do what I can to prevent more plastic from entering our waterways.

    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    My number was higher than I expected so it really got me thinking how I can continue to improve and lower that number. I know I already do a lot to reduce my waste but it really showed me that I can always be doing more.
