    I bought a package of fresh mushrooms and when I used them I was surprised the packaging was plastic.  My bad, I hadn't thought of it at the store.  But I looked it over and on the bottom it said it is recyclable and is made from recycled plastic bottles.

    Not only am I finally remembering to take my reusable bags to the grocery store, but this weekend I remembered to take back the bunches I had of them to recycle at the grocery.  
    I have gotten no points for the styrofoam challenge because I haven't seen any styrofoam since I started.  That's a good thing!

    I got new produce bags!  They are nice looking, easy to use and fold up small enough to carry with me to the store.  Have to get that habit of taking shopping bags with me though.
