    I joined the challenge because I wanted to quantify my plastic usage and expand my understanding of how much our daily lives involve plastic and styrofoam; it is a staggering amount.

    Styrofoam is cheap to produce, transport, and serve. It is also difficult to break down and find recycling centers that accept styrofoam. Due to its low cost, low-income areas are easy targets for it's daily use.

    Produce brought from the markets is where I tend to use single-use plastics most. I have replaced them with reusable and sustainably sourced produce/fruit bags.

    I like using white vinegar as an overall natural cleaner around the apartment. I use it on the coffee maker, countertops, and floors.

    There has been a stigma behind the safety of steel razors and the thought of more blades equating to a better shave. But I have learned that not only do steel razors have a better shave and are safe to use, but they are easier to keep clean, more hygienic than disposables, and less irritating on my skin.

    This was a difficult task. Traveling is always a race with the clock. Finding food on the go usually means picking up something to eat at a market or store, and the quickest is usually wrapped in plastic. In the future, planning will entail my itinerary, luggage, to-go meals, and snacks.
