    Wow, July is almost over! We did a great cookout last night for a summer camp and we used 100% compostable items! And the BBQ was pretty tasty.

    Well we traveled to and from PA this weekend and by planning ahead we didn't have that much plastic waste! With the restaurants closed we packed a picnic lunch so we could enjoy time at the New River Gorge.  Reusable containers, coolers and bags were a big help.
