    Most Delis will weigh and print a label, skip the plastic bag and use your container. If they say no, at least you tried. BJs and Food Lion have been very cooperative.

  • Reflection Question
    Family Provide the Alternatives
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) does your family regularly use? What could be substituted instead?
